E-Safety

At CCJ, we understand the importance of e-Safety for our pupils, family and community. We want to ensure that every child in our care is safe, and the same principles apply to the ‘virtual’ or digital world as are applied to our physical world.  

We have strict filtering systems and policies in place to protect our pupils online as far as possible. Despite this we understand that using digital devices and the web is never 100% safe, therefore we try really hard to ensure that our pupils are equipped for situations which might be unsuitable or uncomfortable both in school and when using technology at home. 

Click here to see our E-Safety Policy or use the links below to support you with e-safety at home and answer any questions you may have. If you need any further advice or support please do not hesitate to ask Mr Desmond, our E-Safety Lead or email alex.desmond@sgmail.org.uk

If you are a pupil or parent of a child at Christ Church Junior and you have an E-Safety concern that you would like to report (concerning anything at home or school) then please follow this link.
