Safeguarding Children and Internet Safety
We as a school are committed to ensuring the safety and well being of our children at all times. We do this by providing a safe environment for them to learn and develop whether this be in the classroom or using external resources found on the Internet.
In this section of our website, you will find details of our safeguarding practices and our Internet safety procedures which you can also use and follow at home.
Schools play a large part in protecting children. We aim to provide a safe environment that is conducive to learning. We also aim to identify children who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm, and take appropriate steps to keep them safe in school and at home when required.

As a school there are set government guidelines which we have to adhere to regarding the safeguarding of our children. Some of these are listed below:
- Department of Education - Keeping Children Safe in Education
- Department of Education - Keeping children safe in education: for school and college staff (part 1)

If you have any issues regarding the safety of a child then please do not hesitate to contact the school to talk to a member of staff.
While technology plays an important role in our children’s everyday lives there are risks involved. It is important that while we provide our children with the skills and knowledge to use the ever expanding technology we also provide high quality e-safety education. We want all of our children to use the technology confidently but also to feel comfortable enough to deal with any issues that may arise.
