At The Littlehampton Academy, we are committed to embedding e-safety across the curriculum. We educate students to understand how they can keep themselves safe in the ever-changing world of technology. E-safety is taught in a variety of ways including assemblies, ICT lessons, and Tutor Time.
Should issues arise, we have clear routes in place for reporting concerns such as cyberbullying. We run regular IT 'health checks' and security checks across our school system to ensure students are safe and free from potential risk in the online world.
As well as supporting young people to stay safe online, we are fully committed to supporting parents/carers with this very important skill at home. For further information, advice and guidance, please visit the links below:
