William Alvey E-safety 2021-2022


On-line software (games, apps, social media) change almost daily. There is also a corresponding  increase in e-safety advice, which although well-intentioned can sometimes leave you more confused than you were in the first place. Please feel free to contact the school and discuss any concerns you may have regarding on-line safety. We have expertise in school and the facility to contact well respected professional e-safety advisors:

Age limits


We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. We hope that parents can strengthen and reinforce the safety messages that your children receive in school, in your home environment. 


We also wanted to use this as an opportunity to ensure all parents know the minimum age of some apps/games.
