At Ludlow, we are committed to keeping all children safe and aware of the vulnerabilities of using online resources. It is important for children to understand the benefits and potential dangers of an application/online site. We do not want you to fear what your child might be looking at or who they might be communicating to online, but it is important for you to understand the apps and sites they are using and secure to put things in place to limit potential dangers and have an open conversation with your child too.
From our e-Safety Policy:
“All agencies providing services to children have a duty to understand e-Safety issues, recognising their role in helping children to remain safe online while also supporting adults who care for children”.– Becta 2008 – Safeguarding Children in a Digital World

- Education for responsible ICT use by staff and pupils.
- A comprehensive, agreed and implemented e-Safety policy.
