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 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. In order to do this we have an annual e safety day in school where children have the opportunity to learn about keeping safe online.
Our e safety day ends with a joint staff, parent and Governor training session which is very informative. If you have been unable to join us for this event in the past, or indeed if you would like to be kept up to date with e safety issues, please look out for information about e safety day in the autumn term.
