Now more than every online safety is paramount, keeping your child safe from harm online is a parental responsibility and at school we strive to educate our pupils about keeping safe online. We also teach our pupils what to do if they do encounter something that makes them feel uncomfortable online. Below are the Ladybrook ESafety guidelines for pupils. Please read through them with your children.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:
· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
