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.
The E-Safety Curriculum
KS1 – Children will be taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about material on the internet or other online technologies.
KS2 – Children will be taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact
Throughout the school year, classes discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. We also send home an Acceptable Use Policy and ask every KS2 child and their parent to sign it. This way we know they have read and understood our school’s rules on staying safe.
