E-Safety For Parents

esafetyHello my name is Mr Davies and I am Birchwood's E-Safety Coordinator. If you have any concerns or questions regarding E-Safety please do not hesitate to get in touch during school hours. This year we will be holding our annual Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 5th February 2019. We will continue for the rest of the school year to encourage the children to be safe in the online world.

Note - We have the CEOP panic button on our website. It can be found in the footer at the bottom of every page; please use this button responsibly. If you wish to know more about it just ask a member of staff.

Online Safety for Parents and Carers’ Course

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers and how to act safely when using the internet.

We are therefore delighted to announce that Birchwood Junior School have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online and have worked with National Online Safety to deliver an interactive online workshop for all our parents & carers.

The course can be taken at your own convenience and covers:

 ▸ Information about online dangers and the newest platforms

 ▸ What online risks to look out for and how to protect your child
