eSafety – parents

At Southall School the health, safety and welfare of our pupils is at the heart of everything we do.

We have extensive security measures in place, which are monitored by both the school and the Local Authority, to protect our pupils from potential danger or accessing unsuitable material online.

Safe use of the internet is important for all children and young people and at Southall we ensure that pupils’ use of the internet is supported by a member of staff and e-safety education forms part of our curriculum.

Pupils take part in a variety of activities suitable to their needs so that they can go to exciting places online safely.

Technology is constantly changing and is a pivotal part of life. We feel that it is essential not only to show the pupils how to safeguard themselves whilst using this fantastic learning resource but also to work with parents.

Parents can help by ensuring that pupils are not accessing inappropriate material at home by way of filters and parental controls. One way of doing this is to use parental control software.
