Internet Safety

The aim of our e-safety commitment to pupils, parents and staff is to provide a safe environment through our use of modern technology. We aim to educate good usage and positively encourage learning through safe interaction with a range of tablet and online technologies.

 

The emphasis on E-safety in the new Computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

 

At Key Stage 1, pupils should be taught to:-

  • use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

 

At Key Stage 2, pupils should be taught to:-

  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact. 

 

However, with the proliferation of mobile services e-safety is more apparent than ever before. Please find below a selection of online resources for pupils, parents and staff alike. The sites listed below are by no means exhaustive but do give a great introduction to e-safety.  We hope you will find them useful to engage you and your child in constructive conversation about e-safety.

 

Our designated member of staff for Internet Safety is Miss Sear.

 

Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you have any questions.
