E - Safety for Parents

E Safety is important to all at Woodfield. We endeavour to ensure all our pupils not only benefit from the great things about technology, but are also aware of some of the pitfalls.

The school has filtering control on it's internet access for everyone, but no system is perfect. In addition to using a filter, talk to your children about safety using the internet. Looking at the sites mentioned below are a great start!

Parent Zone is an excellent all round site for advice.

We recommend you visit the Internet Matters and Parent Info sites, which have a wealth of resources for you. There is a feed of recent articles from Parent Info below.
