E-safety Parent Information

 
We have previously hosted some E-safety workshops run by a representative from Buckinghamshire County Council. These included a KS2 pupil assembly, a KS1 pupil assembly, staff training and Parent and Governor training. The information given during these sessions was invaluable in supporting our dedication to keeping our pupils safe online. 
 
In school our pupils cover e-safety as part of the computing curriculum, using the materials available from CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre). there is information and a link to CEOP resoources on the pupil pages. 
 
To provide further information for parents, following these workshops, we have attached our e-safety and acceptable use policy and our mobile phone policy below. 
We have also signed up to ParentInfo, a new service for parents that has been launched by CEOP. Their website has a number of articles and live feeds which provide excellent up-to-the-minute advice and information.  The ParentInfo button below will link you to their home page. 
Snapchat Update 2017

You may be aware of recent media coverage of a new automatic update to Snapchat, called Snapmaps. This app allows other users to find any individuals signed up to Snapchat to the address  or location they are at.  Having talked to our older pupils, some of whom are signed up to Snapchat, it was clear that they were not all aware of this new feature or how to turn it off. Whilst we have discussed it in school, we thought parents might appreciate some further information regarding this app, and have included some links with information and advice. We hope you find these useful.
