At Chiltern Edge School we take all aspects of "e-safety" very seriously.

This includes the filtering and monitoring of all internet access and email through the school's network, guiding and advising student's through PHSE and ICT, of the potential risks and dangers of all aspects of electronic communication - Facebook and other similar social networking sites, MSM and other messaging applications, and of course the mobile phone and texting - and providing a source of support in the event that things don't go "quite as expected". This support includes school counselling support and, when necessary, police involvement.
