Public Sector equality objectives
E-safety encompasses internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile devices and wireless technology.
We recognise the importance of educating children and young people in using these technologies safely. This is achieved by ensuring children within our school understand the benefits and risks of using this technology. We provide safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences.
All pupils use computer facilities including Internet access as an essential part of learning, as required by the National Curriculum. Pupils and their parents/carers are asked to sign an agreement to show that they have understood and agreed the school’s e-Safety Rules. These rules help us to stay safe on the Internet:
We only use the internet when an adult is with us.
We can click on the buttons or links when we know what they do.
We can search the Internet with an adult.
We always ask if we get lost on the Internet.
We can send and open emails together.
We can write polite and friendly emails to people that we know.
As well as following these rules, we also agree to using the computer, network, mobile phones, Internet access and other new technologies in a responsible way at all times. We know that our network and Internet access may be monitored.
Parents are asked to give consent for the web publication of their children’s work and the publication of photographs subject to the school rule that photographs will not be accompanied by pupil names.
Parent’s Consent for Internet Access
The school takes reasonable precautions to ensure that pupils cannot access inappropriate materials however the school cannot be held responsible for the content of materials accessed through the Internet. The school is not liable for any damages arising from use of the Internet facilities.
Promoting e-safety at home
It is important that you regularly talk to your children about how to keep safe when accessing the online world. It is important that children understand that internet use is underpinned by trust but at the same time children should understand that there are consequences for misuse of this technology. Below are some simple rules that you can use with your children.
Talk to your child about their online use on a regular basis. When opening the conversation with your child start with positives, finding out as much as you can about what your child does online and what it means to them.
