As a school, we play a key role in promoting internet safety to our children, parents and staff members. A whole school approach to e-safety can help involve staffs, governors, parents and even the pupils themselves in keeping children and young people safe online.
We currently expose children to a rich Computing and PSHE curriculum that includes teaching the risks of online safety and strategies to keep ourselves safe when searching the internet. Stand-alone assemblies and helpful posters are also in place to help tackle further issues and promote a safer experience.
We now have 'Digital Leaders' in school who are able to help their peers with any issues or concerns. These problems will then be raised in fortnightly meetings and together the team will work out a solution. A 'worry box' has been added to our school Computing display for children to anonymously share their worries. These issues could be discussed in assemblies.
Please see some of the 'What parents need to know posters' below. These posters will be shown in display unit outside the school gates and will be changed weekly.
If you have any E-safety concerns about your child/children, please see Mr Russell (Headteacher / DSL), Mrs Bryan (DDSL) or Mr Macdonald (Computing Lead).
