Trail : home : eSafety
At St Wilfrid's we have a comprehensive eSafety policy and ensure that we teach the children in our care how to use technology responsibly and safely (please go to information- policies to read our school's eSafety policy).
As parents/carers, you may wish to know more about keeping your child safe while using the internet.
We hope that you will find the following links to be useful:

Our commitment to ICT through the Next Generation Learning Charter:
There can be no doubt that we live in an age of amazing technological advances. The children who come to St Wilfrid's will need the skills to use these technologies effectively to participate fully in today's society. That is why we have made a public commitment to the Next Generation Learning Charter:
"We will ensure that all our learners have access to develop their skills and make use of technology safely. We aspire to be an effective and efficient school with technology competent staff and learners. We will progress towards recognition and accreditation as a continuing commitment to improving ICT throughout the school."
