Online Safety at Gossops Green

We value ICT within our school and encourage our children to experience different ways of accessing mobile technology.  From laptops and IPads through to games consoles and e-readers, our children are able to access a wealth of resources and explore different technologies to suit their learning styles.

The eSafety of our children is of paramount importance to the school and something that we monitor and revisit regularly.  We also work closely with The Collegiate Trust and DB Primary (our school's learning cloud provider) to ensure that we are up to date with current advice and practice.  

We know that parents and carers will also be very concerned that their children are protected and safe when using the Internet, both in school and at home.  We have added some documents below that contain useful information on how to keep your children safe, tips on how to initiate conversations around the subject of eSafety and specific advise on online gaming.  We have also included various links that will direct you to further information from external organisations.
