E-Safety

Article 17

  • You have the right to get information that is important to your well-being, from radio, newspaper, books, computers and other sources.
  • Adults should make sure that the information you are getting is not harmful, and help you find and understand the information you need.

E-Safety for Parents

 

At Holland House, we are aware of the need for a high quality, purposeful ICT curriculum that gives children the skills necessary for lifelong learning.

As part of this continued drive we are rigorous in ensuring that all children are safe online and that they know how to get support should they encounter any unwanted or inappropriate material.

As part of our commitment to Holland House, we have previously delivered two Parent Workshops on the topic of ‘e-safety’ and have both repeats of these sessions and new updates planned. These sessions have previously included information on;

  • Social Networking for parents and children.
  • The dangers of X-Box Live.
  • Geotagging and how to remove them from your pictures.
  • Cyberbullying and how to spot the signs.
  • How we, as a school deal with e-safety.
