E-Safety Guidance

Keeping children safe online

Crawshaw Academy takes its responsibility for online safety seriously.  We filter and monitor students' internet searches and the safeguarding team picks up any concerning trends directly with students and parents.  We want to work in partnership with you to keep your children safe.  The vast majority of their internet usage will be done at home on the device you provide for them.  

Are you confident that you know what they are looking at? 

Resources you could use to help your child stay safe are here:

Keeping children safe online | NSPCC

Staying safe online | Childline

Your online safety  | BBC Bitesize

Domestic Violence

Crawshaw Academy supports Operation Encompass in its mission to ensure that all children will receive timely support after a Domestic Violence incident.  Local police will inform school if there has been a DV incident where a child was present and we will check in with those children during the day and refer for support where appropriate.
