E-Safety & Safeguarding
The school follows the eAWARE programme which has been developed specifically to help schools assess children's online behaviour, identify risk, and raise e-safety awareness so that they are able to negotiate the online world safely.
Raising eAWARENESS requires four steps.
Pupils take online assessments to test their knowledge, behaviour and attitude towards e-Safety.
E-Safety reports collect data from the assessment to paint a picture of how your student body is engaging with the online world. These reports provide insight, identify risk, and make recommendation for further learning.
Teaching staff access lesson plans and video based learning materials to provide students with knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves online.
Pupils are re-assessed in order to measure progress and compare e-Safety awareness (or eAWARENESS) over time.
For guidance and how to support your child on all topics relating to E Safety please refer to:
Bodnant Community School has an important role in the detection and prevention of child abuse. Parents should be aware, therefore, that when a child reports abuse or it appears to a member of the school staff that a child has been abused, the school is required to report the matter to Social Services. There are clear school procedures for the management of suspects or disclosed abuse (this may be physical, sexual or emotional abuse, or neglect). These procedures may result in a referral to Social Services Child Protection Unit. The school has members of staff trained to deal with child protection issues. The named staff members for child protection are Mrs Helen Vernon, Mrs Sian Parry and Mrs Julie Chandler.
The School always prioritises the safety of children. We ask for parents and carers’ understanding and patience when such matters arise.
