Designated Safeguarding Lead & Online Safety Lead : Mrs Winn
At Tollgate Primary School, we are committed to educating children to be responsible users of technology and the internet, including how to be safe online. This can only be achieved with close partnership between home and school.
Online Safety is about ensuring that learners can access the technologies and resources they need without putting themselves at risk personally or financially. It’s about a learning provider making sure that learners, staff and all their stakeholders know how to keep safe while using technology and resources.
Online Safety can include topics such as cyber-bullying, mobile phone technology, preventing identity theft, privacy, social networking sites and child protection.
Using the Internet responsibly is now a significant part of many lessons. All students will look at issues relating to safety using the Internet in ICT lessons, and issues involving cyber-bullying in PSHEE/assemblies.
If you have any worries about Online Safety or any online activities please contact us and speak to a member of the Safeguarding Team.
