Safeguarding & eSafety

 

Wilds Lodge School adopts a proactive approach when it comes to promoting eSafety. Every child completes an e-Safety module in their ICT lessons and will have a further eSafety input in PSHE lessons and assemblies during Internet Safety Week. We also have a number of eSafety posters up in the ICT room that provide helpful advice to children.  Support from the Care Team also promote these messages in the evening.

 
 

Children are encouraged to come forward if they see anything on the internet that is suspicious, if they are a victim of cyber bullying or if they have a question about using the internet. Within school, all internet usage is filtered and monitored in accordance with relevant safeguarding policies.

 

Internet Safety Resources

There is a great new online safety tool designed for parents launched by the Department for Education called Parent Info.  It's has advice on everything from keeping children safe from online trolls to WhatsApp - a guide for parents.

Childnet is a great website resource for parents and children on online safety.  Click here to watch an interactive video on how to keep your child safer online.
