How we support being safe online
At The Belham we work with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks. Online Safety is taught through both our PSHE and Computing Curriculum.
It is important that you talk to your child about online safety as they are likely to be using a wide range of technologies in their home environments, even before they start school. It is not always easy to know where to start and we've put together a guide to online safety which you can explore below. Below are also some useful resources and advice from organisations to support.
