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. Autumn we will be focusing on E-safety and covering the following areas:
-Self image and identity
-Feelings and emotions
-Managing online information
-Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
-Privacy and security
-Copyright and ownership
On this page you will find useful links and resources that will hopefully support you and your children as they grow up with technology.
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, Mrs E Ward (Child Protection Officer/E-safety Co-ordinator), Mrs T Garn (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.
