This page is dedicated to helping the whole family stay safe online, using mobile devices safely and understanding apps.
At KNGS we teach our pupils how to use modern technologies appropriately to support their learning across the curriculum and general ‘e-safety’. The internet can provide a world of opportunities to those who use it securely and safely. It is essential that pupils learn how to keep themselves safe whilst using the internet.
Whilst pupils are using technologies at school there is a variety of software that runs in the background, designed to help keep students safe, such as filters and keystroke monitoring software.
Parents and carers must also understand the importance they play in keeping their child/children safe in their use of online safety. Below you will find links and their parents for both parents/carers as well as pupils about how to keep safe on the internet.
To help you further we have put together a KNGS e-safety booklet. Please download our e-safety booklet, find tips to staying safe online, find useful resources and links to websites dedicated to keeping safe online, as well as some useful downloads.
