At White Hall Academy we recognise the importance of new technologies and the benefits to learning.
Equally, we are aware of the social aspects of new technologies and the dangers that may present.
Within our curriculum we plan opportunities to discuss and teach e-safety.

Below is an checklist from CEOP (Child Exploitation Online Protection) to help you keep your child safe online
Hector's World is a unique cybersafety initiative aimed at children aged 2-9. It is simple to install or uninstall on the majority of computers.
When a child sees something online that upsets or worries them, they can click on Hector's safety button (a blue dolphin who sits in the corner of the screen). This will cover the whole screen with a beautiful underwater scene and gives the child a positive written message, while encouraging them to get adult help. We have taught all of the children how to use Hector's button in school should the need arise.
If you would like to download Hector's Safety Button on your computers at home please click on the link below which will take you to the website.
We regularly hold e-safety workshops for parents and carers both during and after school. Our last workshop was very successful and gave parents the opportunity to work with their children for part of the sesion on internet safety matters.
We will let you know by letter and our newsletter when our next workshop will be.
If there are any particular areas you would like us to cover, then please let us know.
