The Parental Guides below have been sent to school by the Education & Early Years Safeguarding Team. Please take a look at all of the ones that are relevant to devices used by your children and check back if they start using a new type of device. If you have any questions, please contact a member of staff.
Sophos, makers of our anti-virus software, have published a guide aimed at parents to help them keep their children and themselves safe from all kinds of online threats such as phishing and viruses.
This looks to be a useful guide and can help some of the questions we sometimes get asked by parents in school – the information in here is also of use for any adult who uses the internet in any way, particularly those who may be less internet savvy!
If you have any concerns regarding Online Safety that you would like to discuss with school, Mr Learmonth and Mr Beech are both happy to advise. Please contact the office to make an appointment.
