Online Safety

Please read our Online Safety Policy which has been updated in line with Kirklees guidance.

One particular area of concern for parents is the use of their child’s photograph or video footage of their child. Guidance on how we manage this and make sure that children are safeguarded can be found on page 16 of the policy.

We ask for your help in this by asking that any photographs taken at school events are for personal use only and that photographs of children other than your own are not uploaded onto social media sites.

To ensure that all our children know how to keep safe on line we have produced Class Charters appropriate to the age of the children. These are shared in class and displayed. Please could you read these with your child. If you would like a paper copy please ask at the school office.
