E/Online Safety for Parents and Carers
The internet is a crucial part of our lives and it’s an important tool in supporting teaching and learning. E/online safety is our top priority.
Throughout the school year, pupils receive age appropriate advice and guidance about keeping themselves safe on line.
Clear restrictions are in place on the material pupils can access while in school and we encourage pupils to report any online activity which may make them feel vulnerable or unsafe. Further information on our approach to E safety can be found in our Acceptable Use Policy on EVAT’s Policies and Procedures page.
