E-Safety information 

At Parkfield School we recognise that the internet and use of online devices are an important resource in the modern world and have great learning opportunities.  However we take internet safety very seriously and aim to educate our young people and school community in using it responsibly.

The Key have created a Safeguarding hub that allows parents to access interactive guidance on setting up parental controls on your child's devices, as well as guidance on TikTok, YouTube and other apps. To access this hub for a Parkfield School student, please click here.
