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.
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 everyday use of technology, termly focused lessons on an area relating to e-safety and through regular class discussions.
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 Webb (E-safety/computing Co-ordinator), Mrs Handley (Child protection) or Mrs Irvine, Mrs Tattersfield or Mrs Hall in either office. You are also able to report any concerns to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection command) by following the instructions found on their internet page. https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
