We take the safety of our children and staff very seriously at Rocks Park.
E-safety is no exception. We have recently reviewed our e-safety policy which can be found here.
We are able to offer general advice on e-safety, we are not however, able to offer specific technical assistance, but have some suggestions for you -
· stay up-to-date
with the technology your children are using;
steps you can take to keep your children safe online; and
· know what
action to take and where to seek further support if things go wrong.
These are some useful websites to guide you through
Take a look at the 'further information' page on the left hand menu for more online help.
Last year we held parent workshops with Chris Whitelaw, the e-safety advisor for East Sussex. These were very informative and useful. Please find below some leaflets that he was able to share with us.

If you have any concerns about e-safety then please share them with us, either by talking to a member of staff or sending us an email:
Every young person on Facebook needs the ClickCEOP app – this is why
If you work with teenagers, then you’ll know most of them will be using Facebook. You might even be using it yourself... if so, you will want to know about a new, free application in Facebook that is designed to keep young people safe while they are having fun networking online.
ClickCEOP is a new ‘app’ launched on Monday 12 July which links the young user directly from their Facebook profile to help, advice and reporting facilities of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre – the police agency set up to tackle child abuse.
By adding the app, young people and parents can get support from CEOP on a range of issues – viruses, hacking, dealing with bullying online and they can report someone who is acting inappropriately towards them online.
If you have a Facebook profile, app and bookmark the app. If children in your care are on Facebook, get them to search ‘ClickCEOP’ in Facebook and give them to chance to be one click away from help – if they should ever need it.
