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. We are currently planning another E-Safety week at Ankermoor after the success of last years. 'Safer internet day' this year take place on 11th February. With this in mind, a whole week will be used to focus on E-safety. Mr Macdonald and the digital leaders have a plethora of ideas in mind, watch this space. Please find below a copy of the minutes from out meetings.
Our Digital Leaders.

Our Digital leaders are also enrolled onto the Duke of York Idea scheme. This scheme is aimed at children and adults. The challenge is to complete the badges to earn points towards each award, Bronze and Silver. Each child has their own log on details so they can complete their badges in their own time. We are delighted that already we have one child who has acheived their bronze award, Congratulations Callum. An amazing achievement! Our Digital leaders an amazing and exciting idea in planning. Look out for updates.
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).
