Staff and students at Sowerby Bridge High School are celebrating after being awarded a prestigious e-safety accreditation.
The school is the first among the first in Calderdale to be given the 360 Degree E-Safety Mark, accredited by the South West Grid for Learning.
The E-Safety Mark identifies that the school has achieved the highest level of the award in areas such as teaching students how to stay safe online, that they receive excellent curriculum input in regard to making sensible and safe decisions online and that the wider curriculum i.e. assemblies and guest speakers added valuable insight into student safety and awareness.
During the assessment, the student panel did a fantastic job in convincing the assessment team that they were very e-safety conscious and the parents and governing body did the same.
Headteacher Kate Sanderson added that it was a real honour for the school to achieve such a prestigious award and that she was very proud of the students for their input into the assessment process as it underlined how seriously Sowerby Bridge High took the issue of students’ online safety.
