E-Safety update

Welcome back to another great school year.

We are very excited to be making lots of progress and positive changes this year with Digital Citizenship and E-Safety.

Please keep visiting the page to check on updates and activities.

The new Digital Parenting magazine is due out this month and will be distributed as soon as it arrives.

We had lots of feedback about how helpful the magazine was last year which was great to hear.

In the meantime, I hope you find these links useful for yourself and your children.

Welcome to our E-safety page!


Firstly, we would like to thank all parents and carers for taking time out of their busy lives to fill out the questionnaires.  Hopefully, some of the links on this page will help answer some of your questions.


This year we have begun to form an E-safety committee involving members of staff and our Governing body.


We also aim to include representatives from Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (more information about this will follow soon).


The role of the committee is to investigate E-safety changes, review our school procedures and discuss any ways to improve pupils and adult understanding of this topic.

Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe.


The internet can be a fantastic place for children and young people to explore, where they can talk to friends, be creative and have fun.  However, just like the real world sometimes things can go wrong.


Penygelli school has security measures in place to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers/unsuitable material.  Any online safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our online safety policy.


We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work together with parents and carers to ensure the online safety message is consistent.  It is important that parents/carers speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.


The information on this page is to help keep you up to date with the ever changing online environment.
