E-Safety - Keeping Children Safe
At Horsell Junior, we take the issue of Internet Safety very seriously. The internet is a fantastic resource, but it can also bring risks, as some material may contain items which are illegal, deflamatory, inaccurate or offensive. We work with our pupils in school to help them understand the dangers and learn how to keep themselves safe. For additional security, we gain access to the Internet via an Internet Service Provider who has been recommended by Surrey County Council. They offer a filtering service for unsuitable materials for school children.
We will be running an E-Safety Evening at Woking High School and will advise of the date. We encourage all parents to attend.
