E-Safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. As a school, it is our duty of care alongside our staff/parents/carers to protect our children and young people from these dangers and this can be achieved by many different mechanisms working together.
Our school will endeavour to ensure the e-safety of all its members. It uses education, technology, accountability, responsibility and legislation as the key ways to achieve this. We use classroom management software to monitor and manage the use of inappropriate, illegal behaviour and obsessive internet activity to ensure that pupils can work in a safe environment and that any e-safety issues are detected and dealt with in a timely and appropriate fashion.
Pupils are educated in the effective use of the Internet in research, including the skills of knowledge location, retrieval and evaluation. This is achieved via a series of e-safety lessons throughout the curriculum and also through regular form time using the latest CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) materials, and work developed in-house.
