Acceptable Use Policies
Online Safety (formerly E-Safety)
You can find more information for keeping children safe online by following these links
As a school we take Online Safety very seriously and, all through their time with us, our pupils are taught about how to stay safe online. A copy of our Online Safety Policy can be found below.
There are lots of websites where you can obtain up to date information and advise about staying safe for children, parents and staff both online and in the ‘real’ world – some of the websites can be found by clicking on any of the links below :-
Most social media platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook require users be at least 13 years old to use the full platform experience, although there is a way for younger children to access the apps. Anyone under the age of 18 must have approval of a parent or guardian but we are aware that a number of children do have access to these sites at home. We would ask that you check your parental settings at home and consider the appropriateness of allowing your child to have social media account(s) if they do have access.
In addition some more, useful website addresses, including Government information, can be found in the Safeguarding Policy 2019/2020 (located at the top of this page).
The number for the Kirklees Referral and Response Service is 01484 456848
