We have a comprehensive online safety policy which is designed to help parents and practitioners keep themselves and their children safe on line and to protect digital information, including images, from misuse. Parents are asked to support this policy and to talk to their children about staying safe on line, for example to give children a strategy for what to do if they accidentally click onto something they aren’t sure about. We make parents aware of the Hertfordshire e-safety newsletter on the Herts Grid and mention the policy in our home-school agreement.
To safeguard all our children and uphold pupil privacy, we ask that parents do not use mobile phones or other devices with digital storage, in any way, whilst on the premises.
