We strive to incorporate e-Safety into all strands and stages of learning within our school; with e-Safety being taught regularly to our pupils across the curriculum. The children have focused e-Safety lessons within their computing lessons, which cover aspects of staying safe online such as: the safe use of social networks; awareness of the importance of privacy online; how to deal with cyber bullying and what to do if children see something which makes them feel uncomfortable when using the internet. As well as our focused e-Safety lessons, we regularly discuss e-Safety issues in other aspects of the curriculum and also take part in special events such as Safer Internet Day and Anti-bullying week to promote the children’s digital literacy skills and understanding.
Moreover, we have acceptable use policies for pupils and members of staff to further promote e-Safety in school, with the appropriate policy being on display in all learning spaces with internet access. You can find copies of the Acceptable Use Policies below. The full e-Safety Policy can be viewed or downloaded from the School Policies section of our website.
If you have any further questions, please contact the school and speak to Mrs Temple (e-Safety coordinator).
This section of our website will provide you with links to really useful advice on how to be careful when you use the internet and some great tips to keep safe. If you are worried about anything you see online or people are asking you questions about where you live or saying nasty things to you please speak to your parents or teacher or follow any of the links below for help and advice.
Parent Info is collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone and provides information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience, internet safety and a wide range of other topic matters like sex, relationship and body image.
Think U Know Website
I bet you probably like to use the computer for fun. The Think U Know website will help you go on the internet in a safe way and tell who to talk to if you are worried. You can also find out about Lee & Kim’s adventures or watch Hector and his friends learning to use computers safely! If you want to talk to someone else you can call ‘Childline’, which is a place where people who are nice can help you.

- Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
- Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
- Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
- Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
