What is eSafety?

|

eSafety is a term which means not only the internet but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media, e.g. mobile phones. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.

This page aims to equip parents with the best tools and advise for supporting children. If you would like free leaflets or any further information please ask for Mr Aspinall - Computing Manager, at reception.

TIK TOK Privacy Changes

It is becoming apparent a large number of our children access the social media app Tik Tok. Tik Tok has a 13 age rating meaning any one younger than this should not be using the app. If you do choose to allow your children to access this app please note that Tik Tok have recently released privacy setting changes which allow parents to have better control over what children are accessing on Tik Tok.
