E-safety

E-safety is a vital part of our work to keep children safe. In school, we have extensive security measures in place to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material on the internet. Any incidents or breaches of e-safety are identified, recorded and managed in accordance with our E-Safety Policy. The responsibility for e-safety is not solely delegated to technical staff or those with a responsibility for ICT and/or Computing but rests with of all members of the school community who work with our children.

 

All our pupils are taught how to stay safe and how to behave appropriately online. The school participates actively in the national, annual Safer Internet Day each February. Every pupil is made aware of our Acceptable Use Agreement and parents are required to sign a copy on their behalf when they enrol at the school.

The best way to help our children to be safe when using the internet is to talk to them and make sure they understand a few simple rules. It is essential to be realistic: banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is therefore essential. It is also crucial to ensure the right privacy settings are in place for all devices at home. We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work together to ensure the e-safety message is consistent in school and at home.
