E-Safety

More and more children are accessing the internet both at home and at school, it is therefore important that parents, carers and staff are vigilant to what children are able to access, particularly with the increased use of social networking sites.

Within schools we operate our internet through a regional filtering system. We have an e-safety policy that staff follow when allowing children to access the internet. All staff and children sign an appropriate acceptable use agreement. The children engage in a e-safety procedures that they follow and refer to when using the internet.

In the documents below you will find posters that will be displayed in school. Parents may find these useful to refer to when allowing their child to access the internet. There are also some useful websites that have resources to raise awareness of e-safety and how to use the internet safely and responsibly. We often use resources from CEOP and explain to our children how they should report any cyber issues.

We understand that the internet is a fantastic tool which can support children's learning however we believe that we have a responsibility to ensure that staff, children and parents understand how to keep safe while online.
