Safeguarding and Online Safety
At Broadwater Down Primary school we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all of our pupils, our staff and visitors. We believe everyone has the responsibility for the safeguarding and protection of our pupils.
As a school we are part of the wider safeguarding system who are responsible for promoting the welfare of all children. We ensure all children have a right to be heard and to have their wishes and feelings taken into account.
We ensure all our staff understand safe professional practice and adhere to and promote our safeguarding and online safety policies.
We identify approaches to educate and raise awareness of online safety throughout our community and we have clear procedures in place when responding to Safeguarding and Online Safety concerns.

The theme for this year's Safer Internet Day is:
'All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online'
In Key Stage 2, the children looked at a story of an alien who had come to Earth as a tourist because they’ve heard so much about our incredible internet, and especially the games we can play online.
The alien wanted to experience online gaming and the children had to be its guide. We discussed being safe, how to protect yourself online and what the alien should do in different online scenarios.
