E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Redhills . We have security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy. E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
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.
The videos below are part of the South West Grid for Learning Boost service. They are a great introduction to keeping children safe online.
