Safeguarding

E-Safety at Appletree Gardens

Here at Appletree we encourage our learners to be safe and responsible users of technology.  

The term E-safety is not limited to children's use of the internet it also encompasses their use of other electronic devices such as phones, games consoles, email and ipads or tablets.   

Think Before You Click



Through our robust computing curriculum, and in other aspects of school life, children are taught how to stay safe online and what to do in situations when they feel unsafe or unsure.   Our curriculum is further enhanced through assemblies and taking part in annual National and Global events such as Safer Internet Day and Anti Bullying week.

Staff are kept up to date with E-safety training provided by ICT Specialists at North Tyneside City Learning Centre.

We Offered an Online Safety and Introduction to Twitter session for Parents in September

Online Safety and Introduction to Twitter Session for Parents Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online and they are one of the first people children turn to if things go wrong. We know it can be difficult to stay on top of the wide range of sites and devices that young people use so we have arranged for Neil Brown, an ICT Specialist from North Tyneside City Learning Centre, to come into school on Wednesday 28th September at 2.45pm to lead a session for parents and carers. Also in this session will be an introduction to the schools new Twitter account and how you, as parents, can keep up to speed with the latest event news at Appletree.
