Online safety at Pevensey and Westham

If you have an Online Safety concern, please contact Mrs Delaney via the school office.

At Pevensey and Westham we welcome and encourage the use of new technologies. We use them, when appropriate, to support children in enhancing their work.  We recognise our responsibility to take all reasonable measures to minimise the risks of harm to children’s welfare. If there are concerns about young people’s welfare, we take appropriate action.

Our Computing and PSHE lessons support our teaching of online safety. We teach all year groups, in an age appropriate way, the knowledge and skills they require to stay safe online.

Parental Support

The internet is a fantastic resource which allows children to connect, communicate and be creative. However, the internet is always changing.

Therefore, being able to keep up to date with your children’s use of technology can be a challenge. Many parents feel that their child has better technical skills than they do. Children still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online. 

Below are some resources to support with talking about online safety at home:

NSPCC
Internet Matters
