E-Safety at HTPS
At Holy Trinity, we want pupils and parents to understand the risks posed by the internet and how to keep themselves and others safe from risks such as exploitation and extremism, including when using the internet and social media. All members of the school community should understand the risks posed by those who use the internet to “bully, groom, radicalise or abuse” pupils. School leaders oversee the safe use of technology in school and take action immediately where there are concerns about pupils’ wellbeing.
The school have an e-safety group consisting of staff, governors and more importantly pupils. It is their job to promote and report the many aspects and dangers of e-safety to the wider community. They will report their findings on these e-safety pages. The content will be diverse and will range from how to stay safe on the internet to copyright laws.
For all other e-safety news, such as e-safety newsletters, latest news, policies, help and advice if you are worried, please follow the links below.
If you have concerns about anything regarding e-safety and you can’t find the information below, please contact the school.
