At Lady Modiford's we aspire to provide our children with the knowledge and skills to become perceptive, safe and discerning users of the internet.
We aim do this by:
Protecting and educating our pupils, parents and staff in their use and understanding of technology.
Having the appropriate systems in place to intervene and support any incidents.
Striving to prevent any e-safety concerns through excellent teaching of e-safety.
At Lady Modiford's we recognise the importance of ensuring that children are safe using technologies both inside and outside school. On our ‘useful websites’ under the ‘Parents’ tab, we have signposted resources to support you with this. Should you require advice, or have any questions about e-safety, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Thompson or the class teacher.
