Our children are regularly taught about e-Safety during all stages of their education at our school. The children have focused e-Safety topics as part of their digital literacy understanding in Computing lessons, which cover aspects of staying safe online such as: the safe use of social networks; awareness of the importance of privacy online; how to deal with cyber bullying and what to do if children see something which makes them feel uncomfortable when using the internet. As well as our focused e-Safety topics, we regularly discuss e-Safety issues in other aspects of the curriculum and also take part in special events such as Safer Internet Day and Anti-bullying week to promote the children’s digital literacy skills and understanding.
Each class now has a blog and we also use the blogs to teach the children about e-Safety. For example, children are reminded not to use their full name online and not to give out any other personal information. Pupils also know that their comments are moderated by teachers for e-Safety reasons.
In Autumn 2014, we introduced acceptable use policies for pupils and members of staff to further promote e-Safety in school. You can find copies of the Acceptable Use Policies Policies below. The full e-Safety Policy can be viewed or downloaded from the School Policies section of our website.
If you have any further questions, please contact the school and speak to Mrs Cooper (e-Safety coordinator).
Parent Information is collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone and provides information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience, internet safety and a wide range of other topic matters like sex, relationship and body image.
