As our children use technology on a daily basis, we take their safety very seriously. We actively encourage them to use devices securely, responsibly and positively.
On this page you will find useful links and resources that will hopefully support you and your children as they grow up with technology.
Safer Internet Day 2018 6th February
This year to promote e-safety awareness we will be having:
- A parent event with E2BN specialist in E-safety which will be held on the 29th January 2018 at 1:45 p.m in the large hall.
- Whole school staff training will then take place after this event with E2BN specialist in E-safety.
- Years R-6 will be learning how to be safe when using different devices to access the internet.
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.
