Keeping your children safe is our upmost priority.
We are in an information age and pupils can learn a huge amount from the internet and communicate with friends and family through mobile phones. However there can also be a down side, that of cyber-bullying. This is the sending of unpleasant texts or posting nasty items on social networking sites - and is unfortunately another area which is growing rapidly. It is different from more traditional forms of bullying. Some pupils have 24 hour access to the internet or a mobile phone and so it can be hard to escape. The audience for the bullying can be potentially huge and comments and pictures are likely to stay online forever.
In school we use assemblies, PSHCE and our links with the safer neighbourhood team to educate our pupils about the dangers of cyber bullying. We also ask parents/carers to look out for this and if you have any concerns that your child is being cyberbullied, please print off any available evidence and report it to the School as soon as possible.

Since then SNAP has grown to be a recognised parent-led support agency for families of disabled children and young people in Bexley, and provides a wide range of services to both children and their parents and carers. SNAP stands for Special Needs Access to Provision. SNAP aims to ensure that the 1700 or so disabled young people in the borough have the same opportunities as everyone else.
