"The school’s work to keep students safe online, known as e-safety, is exemplary. Students know exactly how to stay safe." (OFSTED 2015)
The school believes that it is vital to give parents and carers access to useful resources so that they can help keep their children safe online. Online safety is a safeguarding issue rather than a technical issue - it is more about parenting and communication skills than technology.
Please take the time to browse the resources below, and don't hesitate to contact the school if you need further advice.
Priory's Designated Safeguarding Lead is Miss Howells - she can be contacted on 01273 476231 x377
We also have an E-Safety Officer responsible for technical advice, Mr Smart.
If you have a safeguarding concern regarding our students out of school hours, please use the contact details on this ESCC page.

National Online Safety Resources For Parents/Carers
The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.
We are therefore delighted to announce that Priory School have shown our commitment to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety providing resources for all parents and carers.
The full range of resources are available to you on the National Online Safety website. You'll find an invitation letter with more details and a link to join the National Online Safety platform here:
