E-safety

E-safety

E-safety is an important issue for schools, pupils and parents. At Bridgewater we are committed to ensuring that this is addressed to pupils routinely and regularly throughout the school year. Pupils receive a CEOP course in Year 7 and repeated assemblies/PSHE lessons to increase their awareness. We will also run Parents’ Information Evenings as appropriate and will update this part of the website with advise for parents to ensure that you are better equipped to support your sons and daughters.

We have recently amended our e-safety policy (along with a full “360” review of our provision in collaboration with the governing body) and will continue to revise this as appropriate throughout the year. This can be found in the Safeguarding section of this page (entitled Online Safety Policy).
