E-Safety

At Parmiter's we take e-safety very seriously. 

In Computer Science lessons for Years 7 to 9 we run a comprehensive e-safety campaign in the first few lessons of the year. This year we focused on Digital footprint and protecting yourself online from abuse and bullying. In previous years we have focused on internet trolling and protecting reputations online.

To support this further a number of lessons are run in the Year 8 Life Skills course relating to e-safety and cyber bullying.  If you wish to find out more about our bullying policy or are having issues with your child and bullying please do not hesitate to contact your son or daughter’s Head of Year.

We would like to draw your attention to the ICT suite of policies, which can be found on the school website under "School Life", in particular e-safety, social media and communication and anti-bullying policies.  Click here to go to the school's policies.
