Our children today are growing up in a very different world from the one we grew up in. Most children these days have regular access to the internet via PCs, games consoles and mobile technologies. Whilst this instant communication offers great opportunities for learning it is our responsibility as adults to ensure we keep our children safe from any dangers or images that could upset them.
At St Bernadette's, we have a robust e-safety policy and Acceptable Use Agreements in place to protect pupils and staff.
All pupils receive e-safety lessons as part of their curriculum following the Welsh Government Digital Literacy resources and we are working towards our 360 degree safe mark for E- Safety across the school.
We have an annual visit from our School Liaison Police Officer PC Mark to talk about the issue of Cyber-bullying.
Pupils receive assemblies dealing with the issue of e-safety and we celebrate Safer Internet Day (SID2017) which this year will be on Tuesday 7th February 2017. Click HERE for more information.
There was a parent's e safety meeting on Monday 10th October and this PowerPoint is available with other resources below.
Please support us by talking to your child about e-safety issues and monitoring what they are doing online and while using technology.
