ONLINE SAFETY

Our ICT policy reflects the importance we place on e-safety, in terms of using information systems and electronic communication safely. We want to keep our children safe online, when using mobile phones, games consoles and any wireless technology. There it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

All of our pupils and staff have signed e-safety agreements and training is regularly provided to staff through INSET and to pupils during lessons. Parents have also signed the home-school agreement to say they will follow these rules to help keep their children safe.

A copy of our e-safety policy can be found in our Policy Documents area where there are also our other child protection policies which are built into our Computing curriculum.

We also recommend the pages/links below for parents and carers for further e-safety information:
