Safeguarding and E-Safety
Thomas Eaton is aware of the Prevent Duty and it is included in our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
The Prevent Lead for the school is Steve West, our Headteacher.
In a letter to the Secretary of State December 2009 Dr. Tanya Byron wrote:
“New technologies are integral to the lives of all children, young people and their parents. They inspire children to be creative, communicate and learn. It is essential that children and young people tap into the potential of the digital world if they are to enjoy their childhood and succeed in life. In educating children and young people we should empower them to learn how to use digital technology responsibly, not simply block what they can access. We must give them the information and skills they need to be digitally literate and savvy users. This enables them to take advantage of the opportunities that new technologies can offer, as well as being able to deal with any risks that arise.”
While technology is empowering it has its risks. Everyone has a part to play in keeping safe online.
