At College Park School all aspects of Safeguarding are important to us. 

The use of the Internet, digital devices  and platforms for teaching and learning have become the norm in education. So with this in mind, issues surrounding using these platforms and devices safely and positively is of the utmost importance to us as a school community. 

This section is dedicated to E-Safety and how we are putting into place steps to using the Internet, digital devices, software and apps in a way that promotes safe learning for all. 

As with all aspects of Safeguarding, working  collaboratively with families is the best way to achieve this and the list of resources we have gathered here will give you ideas and tips on how to promote E-Safety when your child is not at school. 

If you have any concerns, questions, or want more advice please contact the school Safeguarding Team who will be happy to speak with you. 

Tips:

2- Setting Boundaries

Settting boundaries for your child's internet usage may be needed. This will provide your child with a clear understanding of the limits, expectations and consequences of their behaviour. 

Familiarise yourself with the privacy, safety and security tools on new devices; ensure you are in a position to teach your teach your child how to make their accounts priviate and how to block and report other people online.
