At Wheatley Park School we take all aspects of "e-safety" very seriously.

This includes the filtering and monitoring of all internet access and email through the school's network, guiding and advising students through PHSE and ICT, warning them of the potential risks and dangers of all aspects of electronic communication - Facebook and other similar social networking  sites, MSM and other messaging applications, and of course the mobile phone and texting -  and providing a source of support in the event that things become threatening or undermine a young person’s well being. This support includes support  and guidance for individuals, sanctions and parental meetings and, when necessary, police involvement. 

There are a number of excellent sources of information on the web, many of which we use in school. If you want to do a little research of your own have a look at these three sites:
