E-safety in school

We ensure that filters are in place so that children cannot access unsuitable or potentially dangerous sites or material within school and ask that parents monitor this at home too. Children will be encouraged to use, think and follow the SMART rules when working with technology. The children are taught about e-safety through ICT lessons, everyday use of technology, termly focused lessons on an area relating to e-safety and through regular class discussions.

E-safety for parents

The 3Cs of online safety

Content – Is what I am seeing appropriate for me?

Contact – Is what this person saying to me safe?

Conduct – Am I behaving in a safe and respectful way?

We believe in a fourth ‘C’ Communication- have a talk with your child when they use the internet and talk them through the 3Cs of online safety.  

Concerned? Speak to your child's class teacher, Ms H Sutton (Child Protection Officer/E-safety Co-ordinator), Miss T Nothard (ICT Technician) and Miss Barrasso (ICT Co-ordinator).

You can help your children stay e-safe by monitoring the time they spend on any device, how they are using them and by talking to them about their internet use.

We recommend the Thinkuknow site for e-safety there are lots of age appropriate characters and activities children can play to enhance their knowledge of E-Safety.
