E-Safety

Bedelsford School strives to ensure that children and young people are:

  • safe from maltreatment, neglect, violence and sexual exploitation
  • safe from accidental injury and death
  • safe from bullying and discrimination
  • safe from crime and anti-social behaviour in and out of school
  • secure, stable and cared for

These aims apply equally to the ‘virtual world’ that children and young people will encounter whenever they use ICT in its various forms. For example, we know that the internet has been used for grooming children and young people with the ultimate aim of exploiting them sexually; we know that ICT can offer new weapons for bullies, who may torment their victims via websites or text messages; and we know that children and young people have been exposed to inappropriate content when online, which can sometimes lead to their involvement in crime and anti-social behaviour.

It is the duty of the school to ensure that every child in their care is safe, and the same principles should apply to the ‘virtual’ or digital world as would be applied to the school’s physical buildings. Please find below further information on E-Safety

The school is truly ‘outstanding’ indeed and we don’t mean just in the sense of how Ofsted have classified it.
