360 Degree Safe Award
We are proud to announce that Bowmandale has achieved the 360 Degree Online Safety Mark. To achieve this award, we had to show that we provide a high standard of online safety education and awareness for all members of the Bowmandale community by reaching a series of benchmark levels. At the end of the summer term an assessor visited the school to review our application and meet with staff, parents, carers, governors and pupils.
Following her visit, the assessor reported that 'there is a real sense of a whole school approach to online safety at Bowmandale,' and that 'pupils and staff are clearly passionate about online safety.' She commended the Digital Ambassadors and said 'they are an inspiration and their play an immensely important role in educating future citizens.'
We would like to thank everyone who has helped us to raise awareness of online safety for children both in school and at home.
