Keeping your child safe online
Please find a link below to the most up to date guidance on how to keep our children safe online. This has come from the Leeds Safeguarding Children’s Partnership.
We know all of our pupils have access to the internet, this is also within school too. The internet proved to be a wonderful tool during our school closure, to keep in touch with family and friends, to support our young people with their home learning and much more. However, our very first priority is that our children know how to stay safe online as well as aiding our parents/carers to support our pupils with this too. We hope you find this information useful and helpful in supporting your child/ren to stay safe online.LSCP – Keeping your child safe online

As part of our computing curriculum and safeguarding procedures we teach E-safety throughout school and our teaching ensures that we not only meet the expectations of the curriculum in this respect but that we actively respond to issues that arise due to rapidly developing technology. We follow advice from the Leeds Safeguarding Team and as explained at our e-safety parents’ evening in the autumn term, we use a range of websites to support our teaching and learning around e-safety. Links to some of these websites are shown below. Please encourage your child to talk to you about their learning around safeguarding in school.
Although much of the teaching around safeguarding is through discrete lessons, our school ethos, curriculum and policies ensures that we integrate safeguarding into everything we do.
Should you ever have any concerns or queries around safeguarding, please do not hesitate to contact one of the school’s designated safeguarding leads: Miss Milivojevic, Mrs Ward, Mrs Hodgson or Mrs Frost. Up to date information is regularly added to our school website under the safeguarding page. Please continue to visit our website regularly to ensure you receive up to date information.
