E-Safety

At Woodlands School we recognise that technology is now an inescapable and positive part of everyday life and learning.

E-safety means keeping safe when using modern technology, such as mobile phones the internet and social networking sites.

Using technology sensibly is something that we encourage all our pupils to do, it is important that we work together in partnership to teach e-safety both at home and at school.

 

We want to make the internet a safer place for children and we can achieve this through equipping school staff, parents and our students with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers and how best to react should an incident arise.

 

Below are some links for parents and carers that will provide useful guidance and support on e-safety issues:
