Computing / E-Safety Introduction
|Computing Skills we Teach
Wood End Park Academy, we take great pride in ensuring that we are all
E-Safe when using the internet. We aim to keep our pupils safe online
and also when using different technology such as games consoles,
tablets and mobile phones.
Pupils at Wood End Park Academy
have done an excellent job so far, making sure they are always
following E-Safety rules, knowing how to behave when using the internet
and asking for advice whenever they are uncertain of anything. We look
to continue this and help educate others of the benefits,
responsibilities and risk of using information technology.
The photos of our E-Safety charters, displayed in each class, show how
important we feel it is to remember the rules.
concerns parents may have on how their child or other pupils are using
the internet at home, please do let the Academy know.
