We are currently developing our eSafety Policy to make sure that all of our children use ICT and the internet safely and appropriately whilst at school.
We deliver online safety lessons every term in school using resources from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and London Grid for Learning. We also make sure that all teaching staff are trained in online safety and kept up-to-date with best practice and processes.
You may also want to follow some of our advice and guidelines with your child at home.

Vodafone have produced an online magazine to help parents by giving them advice and information to help keep their children safe online:
Reporting online safety issues
Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up.
You can report any online safety issues or incidents at www.ceop.police.uk/ceop-report.
