Online Safety

At Henry Tyndale School, online safety is of paramount importance for our students. Computers, ipads,  gaming machines and other types of technology are important for our students’ learning and as leisure activities in school, at home and in the community.  We have developed our online safety curriculum to support our students to be able to access these online activities safely

Staff receive online safety training and updates so that they are able to support our students with these skills. This training helps them to be able to identify risks and respond to concerns appropriately.  Staff report online safety concerns to the DSL and log them on our safeguarding platform My Concern. These concerns are then followed up in appropriate manner with the students and their parents

We give updates to parents on current online safety risks in our school newsletters.  We also host online safety training for parents. Please contact the office for more details.
