Online Safety

Miss Edey and Ms Burke are in charge of Computing and E-Safety at school. If you  would like to speak to them about computing in school, please come and ask. Online Safety is an important part of keeping our pupils safe at Totternhoe CE Academy. We  have security measures in place in school, which are monitored carefully, helping safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with school policies.   
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent.
It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.   
The school uses the latest guidance and activities from  the   CEOP   centre (Child Exploitation & Online Protection), part of the National  Crime Agency. This can be found on their  Thinkuknow   page.
