E-safety

E-Safety
 
At Hillcrest we take e-safety very seriously. As the children use more technology, both in school and out, it is important that they are taught how to use it safely. 
 
E-safety is an important part of our ICT curriculum and every pupil will be taught how to keep themselves safe online. The children will revisit this every year at an age appropriate level. We also make e-safety a particular focus of our on-going PSHE and assembly programme. 
 
As part of a yearly focus during 'anti-bullying week', we also look at some of the issues of cyber-bullying. You can download a presentation from one of our anti-bullying assemblies using the link below. 
 
You can also find further information about e-safety by reading our e-safety policy and by exploring some of the additional links provided below.
 
If you ever have  any concerns about your child's e-safety or want to ask any questions about ensuring children's safety online, please come in and speak to Mr Browse or, our ICT leader, Mrs Loader.
