Online Safety

 

The Internet has become an integral part of children’s lives, enabling them to undertake research for school projects, talk to their friends and access information from around the world. Increasing provision of the Internet in and out of schools brings with it the need to ensure that all our families are safe.

 

At Newfold, we take online safety, both in school and at home, very seriously.  Our children engage in Online Safety lessons termly, we take part in the annual Safer Internet Day and our Digital Leads regularly lead assemblies for the different phases of school.

 

To support this, in the 2020/2021 academic year we provide on-line parent workshops through 'eSafe'. These workshops addressed current on-line issues and gave families the most up-to-date advice in keeping children safe whilst on-line.

 

In the 2021/2022 academic year, and again in partnership with 'eSafe', we will providing  for all phases of school that will highlight the importance of on-line safety. 

 

This area of our school website is dedicated to helping our families better understand the issues around online safety and manage the risks more effectively.
