At Sale Grammar School we consider esafety to be a crucial aspect of our students' education. We consider it to be equally important that we provide support and guidance to parents on this very important subject.
TOP OF WISH LISTS
Top of many wish lists may well be smart phones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs and games consoles. All of which connect to the internet. For parents' guides to online safety, read on through our e-safety pages.

e-Safety for Parents
It is really important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about eSafety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box), mobile phones, televisions, tablets (such as the iPad) and many other things.
There are several elements to eSafety that we teach at Sale Grammar School:
- How to use the internet safely, and what to do if something goes wrong or we see something we shouldn't
- How to keep ourselves safe - keeping our details private and keeping our data secure
- How to behave when using technology - being courteous and responsible, and what to do if others treat us in a way which is not kind. This strand also links with our behaviour and anti-bullying policies.
- Encouraging a healthy use of technology - not over-using mobiles, consoles or computers.
