New technologies inspire children to be creative, communicate and learn. However, while the internet is a great resource, it is important that children and young people are protected from the risks they may encounter.
Linthwaite Ardron CE (A) J&I School maintains a whole-school approach to E-Safety ensuring that all staff recognise and are aware of E-Safety issues. There is a commitment to training, the development of policies, and a straightforward consistent approach when tackling an incident.
Linthwaite Ardron engages with and encourages pupils, parents and the wider school community in the reporting of potential E-Safety issues.
The school holds events between parents and training for staff where advice and information is offered regarding E-Safety and safeguarding issues.
The E-Safety Co-ordinator at Linthwaite Ardron is Mrs K Wood, FS & KS1 Leader.
