Here at Kingsdale Foundation School we take E-Safety very seriously. We provide robust education and training for staff and students, as well as systematically reviewing our policies and provisions, to ensure our young people understand how to ‘stay safe online’. We work alongside companies and charities such as: www.360safe.org.uk, www.childnet.com and www.onlinecompass.org.uk, along with many others to make certain we have the latest up to date information and are empowered to make the right decisions for our pupils.
Our E-Safety Policy can be accessed via the link below.
Parenting in the Digital Age
Kingsdale continues to hold Digital Well-being sessions for parents providing extremely useful information and advice on how to keep children safe online. In today’s technological age it is important that we keep abreast of the dangers faced by young children on the internet and on social media.
Safer Internet Week
Every year, Kingsdale celebrates Safer Internet Week with a range of activities designed to help our young people stay safe online.
Our full programme of activities for 2020 Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 11th February can be accessed from the link below.
