E-Safety

The Internet is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. With social media and the continuous stream of emerging technologies, the way of social interaction between peers is forever changing. Whether via computer, games consoles or mobile devices, our young people are increasingly accessing the Internet whenever they can and wherever they are.

Unfortunately, this brings new risks and concerns surrounding online safety and ensuring that children are aware of the dangers and teachers, parents and carers do all they can avoid these risks.

Our schools at Endeavour Federation are here to provide our pupils and parents with the information and advice they need to be safe and resilient in today’s digital world. Visit our policies page to read our E-safety policy.
