Welcome to our Online Safety page!

 

At South Kirkby Academy, we ensure that the safety of all our pupils is paramount. We recognise that ICT (Information & communication Technology), the internet and communication online can support children's development and enrich learning experiences in a technologically evolving world. The increased use of technological devices such as laptops and PCs, mobile phones, tablets, e-readers and gaming devices is becoming commonplace and so it must be a shared responsibility to ensure that children are safeguarded online and that they know how to appropriately use them.

Mr Reynolds

 

Every year, we hold an informal workshop for SKA parents regarding internet safety. This is a fantastic opportunity to have questions answered and share concerns with the staff of South Kirkby Academy. Look out for the next one which will be advertised via flyer and please feel free to join us!
