Keeping Your Child Safe
Keeping up to speed on the ever-changing digital world can be overwhelming. Being bombarded by advice, guidance, policies and warnings can add to this anxiety. We hope that the information on this page helps to ease your concerns. Please use this page as a means of supporting your child.
It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about e-safety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box), mobile phones, televisions, tablets (such as the iPad) and many other things.
At Christ Church, we're 'drip-feeding' communication through the letters, parents meetings and adding useful videos to this part of the site.
To avoid your child going onto Safari or Google and searching/typing in addresses, you can set up a site like an app. Watch the video below to see how.Setting internet sites up as 'apps' on your mobile device

Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism
In line with the DfE's Prevent Duty advice (June 2015) we are committed to actively promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the Rule of Law, Individual Liberty and Mutual Respect and Tolerance of those with different Faiths and Beliefs. Our core mission of diversity permeates all we do. We place a strong emphasis on the common values that all communities share such as self-respect, tolerance and the sanctity of life. Many of these form our Christian values. We work hard to broaden our pupils' experience, to prepare them for life and work in contemporary Britain. We teach them to respect and value the diversity around them as well as understanding how to make safe, well-considered decisions. We recognise that we have a responsibility to protect children from all forms of extremism and this forms an integral part of our Safeguarding Policy. This includes the use of internet filtering systems in school, to ensure children are safe from terrorist and extremist material when using the internet. If you have any concerns regarding radicalisation and extremism please contact one of our designated Safeguarding leads (Luigi Leccacorvi or Carolyn Favell) at the school.
