E-Safety & Cyber-Bullying
In the current digital age in which we live, it is increasingly important that we ensure our children are equipped with the skills to be safe in the online world. We achieve this through having a clear and robust e-safety policy which ensures children are kept safe but also are taught to keep themselves safe.
As part of this policy, we have clear procedures to keep children safe in school including highly filtered internet access for pupils and an acceptable use agreement which ensures that children have clear guidelines for their online behaviour. In addition to this, e-safety forms a central part of our PSHE and Computing curricula. Children are taught age-appropriate to support them to understand how to stay safe online and ensure they are able to enjoy the online world in a safe and responsible way.
We have an E-safety group in school which also works to ensure that our practices are as effective as possible. Our online safety group currently comprises of:
Marc Wheeler (Headteacher and E-safety Lead)
Paddy Kumar (Deputy Headteacher and Deputy E-safety Lead)
Sophie James (Family Support Worker)
Becky Cartlidge (SENCo)
Father David Way (E-safety and Safeguarding Governor)
If you have any questions about e-safety or would like any advice on this topic, please speak to Mr Wheeler.
