Please use the resources below to help your children stay safe online. Staff are aware that children are vulnerable to being bullied or groomed for abuse or radicalisation online.  Staff will be vigilant to any signs that that this may be occurring and report any concerns in the usual way. It is important that parents make the school aware of any concerns they may have about the online activity of their child, or any particular vulnerability they may have in this respect, so that we can help. You can do this by calling the school or emailing: admin@kendall.essex.sch.uk
