The internet is a great way to discover, create and connect with people. Issues around the safe use of the internet and cyberbullying are few and far between but they do happen, in all walks of life.

At Beauchamps High School we aim to provide a safe and secure environment where the use of new technologies in enhancing learning is valued. In an ever evolving world of technology, the internet provides new opportunities but also new challenges. We have a duty to protect and educate our students and staff in their use of ICT, and e-safety is a fundamental aspect of school life across our curriculum.
I am sure you will be aware of how much your children rely on modern communication technology such as the internet, smart phones and social networking as part of their daily lives. We believe it is essential for e-Safety guidance to be given to our students on a regular and meaningful basis. Students are taught how to behave responsibly and safely whilst onlie in Computing and during special assemblies. Students are educated about the online risks that they may encounter outside school.
