Online safety is an important part of keeping boys safe at Homefield. Each term the boys in Reception through to Year 8 are given a specific e-safety topic to discuss and explore. We want to give the boys the skills to be able to make informed choices and to know what to do if they find themselves in a situation. Each February Homefield takes part in a worldwide Safer Internet Day campaign and biannually we offer training to parents and staff exploring various e-safety topics at our special evening event. All our boys and parents have access to our e-safety resources through Firefly, these remain available for the whole academic year.

Very useful resources are also being produced by 'Think U Know' which we would like to share with you. They have created packs to support parents during COVID-19 and the closure of schools. Each fortnight, they will be releasing new home activity packs with simple 15 minute activities parents can do with their children to support their online safety at a time when they will spending more time online at home.
