At Sandridge we educate staff, parents and pupils about eSafety, so it gives all stakeholders of the school community a better understanding and awareness of how to protect themselves and others online.
Access to equipment and the internet is now very easy at home and at school.
The websites and help sheets below provide a comprehensive list of links and information about online safety so parents, and their children, can decide what is right for their family when using the Internet and associated technologies.
If you would like to speak to one of our Esafety Coordinators in school, they are – Lisa Roberts, Headteacher and Richard Sherwood, IT Technician-IT support Manager.
