E-safety is about protecting our school community whilst using the internet and related digital technologies. Here at Goffs-Churchgate we are committed to ensuring that our students are well educated to be able to embrace these new technologies, allowing them to engage creatively with learning, communication and interaction whilst understanding the associated risks and therefore staying safe.


This symbol demonstrates our commitment to safe remote education, whilst working towards the criteria for the National Online Safety’s Safe Remote Education award.


The internet and other digital technology, such as mobile phones, apps, gaming media and tablets are powerful tools and have transformed the way in which we communicate with others.  Young people often embrace the use of technology, however in order to use these technologies effectively and most importantly safely, it is important to highlight the potential associated risks as well as the benefits.


To support our students develop into positive digital citizens, we interweave e-safety, along with all other aspects of SMSC, RSE and Personal Development, into all aspects of school life including our lessons, assemblies and form time activities.


If parents have concerns about the authenticity of who their child may be communicating with online, a referral can be made to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection), by clicking on the button below.  This button can also be found at the top of each page on our website.
