The academy promotes the safe and positive use of digital technology for pupils and parents/carers.
E-safety is an increasingly pressing issue for parents/carers, Packmoor Ormiston Academy have adopted the Safer Schools App as a way of equiping them with the necessary knowledge to keep their children protected online, so that the whole family can enjoy the internet securely.
The online world can be a bit overwhelming at times but it is important we understand what our children are doing online so we can help make them safer. The Safer Schools App aims to help with this. The App is designed to support and protect children by educating and empowering them both at school and at home. Through their log-in, KS2 children get access to information that is relevant to them, and parents/carers/guardians of any aged child will receive tips and advice on how to keep them safer online.
For details of how to access the Safer Schools App please contact your child’s class teacher.
E-safety is the safe use of information systems and electronic communications, including the internet, mobile phones and games consoles. It is important that children and young people understand the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
