E-Safety @ St Bede’s
At St Bede’s we believe that E-Safety is an essential life skill for our young people. It is actively taught throughout the curriculum, but particular focus is given to the topic in our Computing lessons each year.
A number of assemblies are held for pupils, and guidance given to parents (via our website and social media channels and drop in sessions within our Multi Academy) as well as training for staff on a regular basis.
During our life skills lessons, pupils learn about the wider effect of bullying and other issues which are often linked back to online activities.
During Anti-Bullying week in November, we have a whole school focus on cyber bullying and we also follow the yearly theme for the campaign. We also celebrate Internet Safety Day (usually in February).
On our website, in the quick links drop down above, pupils are able to quickly access a range of resources that have been explored during these lessons and events.
Our systems in school actively monitor students to pick up on bullying or wider e safety concerns. We operate a comprehensive filtering system and take a proactive outlook on dealing with issues as soon as they occur. In this regard we are an Impero Super School – which allows us to harness the power of this superb piece of software across our school.
Below are regular advice and E Safety article for parents and pupils.
