e-Safety for Pupils and Parents
Pupils at Welholme Academy use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning and e-Safety plays a very important part in how we protect the children under our care. In school we have extensive security measures in place which are monitored both internally and externally, to prevent children accessing inappropriate materials. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy.
e-Safety is taught throughout the school to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Pupils have access to a great range of e-Safety lessons using their own Blog account and parents are free to use these materials with their children at home.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
This section of the website aims to provide both pupils and parents with help and guidance to ensure your children enjoy the internet in a safe environment.
Internet Matters - a site full of advice and guidance for parents including help with setting up parental controls on devices.
Common Sense Media - a great site for parents who would like more information on apps and games that the children are using.
