E- safety is an important part of keeping our children safe at Copley. We understand that in an increasingly digital world, it is important for children to be able to access and use the internet safely. We have extensive measures in place to safeguard children from inappropriate content or potential dangers. In addition to this, online safety is taught to children through their computing and ICT lessons. Assemblies also cover important parts of e- safety in an age appropriate manner. We believe education around safe use, is essential.
At school, each class has also appointed 'Online Safety Councillors'. These children will be working with our ICT leads on all things online safety. Below is a list of the online safety councillors for each class.
Kings Lea - Hannah and Sam
