E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Bourton Meadow Academy. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, 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 provide our parents/carers information on what they can do and some golden rules to online safety at home. We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with you to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent at home and at school. Your help is needed to talk to your children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. Children can accidently or deliberately be exposed to unwanted or unpleasant content or comments online and there are steps you can take at home to minimise this risk.
Please take the time to read the information below on how to help support your child at home and ensure they are kept safe.
