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
Week beginning Monday 13th March 2017, we held a Digital Well-being session 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.
The handout distributed to parents at the event is available via the link below. Parents who would prefer a hard copy are asked to please contact Mr Fatodu by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Safer Internet Week 2017
Throughout this week, we celebrated Safer INternet Day (Tuesday 7th February 2017) with a range of activities designed to help our young people stay safe online.
The full schedule of events that took place this year can be accessed via the link below.
