E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Langley Moor Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed. E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
As part of our participation in the Speak Out Stay Safe programme, our colleagues from the NSPCC deliver an online workshop session for parents, on a three year programme. Please follow the link below for further advice and guidance on how to keep our children safe online.
