What to do if something happens to your child online, and who to contact

We would also ask that you speak to the Principal and E-Safety Co-ordinator should something unfortunate happen whilst your child accesses the internet at home. This way we can support you and your family.

Privacy Issues

The link below covers the topic of privacy issues online. There is a misconception that internet safety and internet privacy are one and the same, but there is much more to maintaining privacy than the usual “internet safety best practices”.
The information contained in this link will help to protect you from things like identity theft (1 in 40 families have been affected by child identity theft) as well as algorithm-triggered advertising. Please do take a look. Many thanks to Sophie from Comparitech for providing us with this link.
