The online world is a wonderful place for young people to explore, with unprecedented opportunities for learning and creativity.
As with the real world, however, online space needs to be explored with vigilance and a critical eye. At Bishop Ramsey School we aim to inform and educate all our students during their years with us, helping them use the internet and online media, safely and positively. Your child will leave school well-equipped to develop a positive digital footprint and stay safe online.
At Bishop Ramsey we incorporate e-safety into our curriculum, including training in lessons, Tutor time and school events. We fully recognise the importance of including parents and carers in this aspect of school life and warmly invite you to familiarise yourselves with the resources we use via our website. This page also aims to reassure you with information about who to contact should you have any concern.
Your child's safety is our highest priority. Please know that we will support you with any concerns you may have regarding safeguarding online and offline. We have a Designated Safeguarding team who can be contacted via our Safeguarding page. We will then contact you and arrange to swiftly address your concern.
You might find the following videos helpful. They have been produced for parents by Live My Digital. You may wish to discuss the content with your child after watching the films together.
It is a good idea to keep up-to-date with the current issues around staying safe online. There are some excellent resources available which detail how young people are vulnerable and give advice on maintaining awareness and helping your child.
