We all use technology in our everyday lives and it is vital that we are able to use it safely. In the event that we feel unsafe about something, we need to know what to do. The links below will help you refresh yourself, or to learn more about internet safety, and how to stay safe during these unprecedented times.
As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet only in teacher-supervised lessons. We strongly believe that the use of the web and email is hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. But because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
At the start of the school year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. We then ask every child to sign an acceptable use agreement so that we know they have read and understood our school’s rules on staying safe.
