E-Safety

esi-1

As part of school and everyday life, we feel that using new technology can enhance the work we do in a variety of ways. However, we also appreciate that it can also present dangers that we all should be aware of.

E-Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones and wireless technology. It highlights the need to educate children and young people about the benefits and risks of using new technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experiences. The links at the bottom of the screen will take you to a wide range of recognised groups and organisations dedicated to keeping children safe when using the internet or other forms of electronic communication.

SMART Rules

At school, we teach the children the SMART rules of Internet safety.

Safe, Meeting, Accepting, Reliable and Tell.

These SMART rules are embedded across the school and children are constantly reminded of them.

E-Safety Information

The NSPCC has recently launched their new 'Share Aware' campaign - a campaign for parents of children aged 8-12 to help reassure you and give you everything you need to keep your child safe.

Parents tell us that they sometimes feel confused by the internet and what they should be letting their children do online. This campaign provides straightforward, no-nonsense advice about how to protect your children online. The internet is a great place for children to be. Being 'Share Aware' makes it safer.
