Keeping Children Safe - Advice for Parents & Carers

Sir Harry Smith Community College recognises that modern technology is an intrinsic and ubiquitous part of modern-day life and that our students use ICT extensively both in school and out of it. We also recognise that along with the opportunities that ICT offers, it also brings with it problems and risks that all students need to be aware of.

E-safety has a very high priority at Sir Harry Smith Community College and all students receive advice and guidance appropriate to their age and ‘e-awareness’. As well as learning about e-safety in their ICT lessons, students get more targeted input during assemblies. Useful documents are also provided on this page.

Being safe is also about teaching youngsters to make the right decisions as they develop independence and start to go out on their own or, be home alone. The leaflets provided by the NSPCC provide advice and guidance on these topics and also offer assistance to parents when dealing with setting boundaries and giving responsibility.
