Safeguarding Our Children Online
At Bure Park Primary School we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our children. This is achieved through our whole school ethos and policies which include our 'Safeguarding and Child Protection,' policy and 'E-safety.'
Our Safeguarding leads are Yvonne Hewson, Pam Cotter and Karen Ward. If you have any concerns of a safeguarding nature, including e-safety, please contact a member of this team who will work with you to address any issues raised.
We also extend our Safeguarding duties to supporting parents, carers and members of the community to safeguard children in collaboration with staff at school. This is achieved through a thorough and progressive curriculum which addresses issues such as e-safety, keeping safe on-line, cyber-bullying, internet safety and guidance,
On this page we have gathered a number of resources, documents, videos and links to other websites to help you successfully navigate through the ever-changing face of the internet. If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact the school. We would be only too pleased to give you any help or advice about keeping you and your children safe whilst online. Mrs Halstead and Mrs Ward are our key contacts for online safety.
How to keep children safe online using our Safer Schools App
At Bure Park we believe it is essential to educate our pupils to keep the safe online. We are therefore, proud to work with Safer Schools, in conjunction with Zurich Insurance to provide you with a school app to keep you up to date with changes to social media. Please contact the school office if you would like details of how to download our app or see the information below.
