Online Safety

At Bluecoat C of E Primary School we have a commitment to educating all stakeholders in the benefits of the use of ICT. High priority is given to recognising and managing the risks associated with the use of ICT in terms of e-safety and ensuring that all usage is appropriately and adequately controlled. Our e-safety policy has been compiled in line with the guidance available from the South West Grid for Learning and the ‘Report an Issue’ button on our home page links to the SWGfL’s ‘Whisper’ reporting system, which enables pupils, parents and members of the public to instantly report any online content giving cause for concern.

ICT Support Manager: Marten Gallagher
