E-safety Parent Zone
Heathlands School recognises that the internet, mobile and digital technologies provide good opportunities for children and young people to learn, socialise and play, provided that they are safe.
The digital world is an amazing place, it is vast and fast moving but with few rules. Young people’s future economic success may be partly dependent on their online skills and reputation so they need to learn to use the internet safely.
We are committed to ensuring that all pupils and adults in the school community have the knowledge and understanding to use internet websites, social media and related technologies safely and responsibly. This is part of our safeguarding responsibility.
E-safety is covered in the curriculum for all pupils and Staff are aware that some pupils may require additional support or teaching, including reminders, prompts and further explanation to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of online safety issues.
Regular advice regarding e-safety is given to Parents and detailed information is available in the Parent zone area of Heathlands computing website www.heathlandscomputing.co.uk/parent-zone
