E-Safety

We are living in an exciting time with new technology being developed and becoming available every day. The introduction of the Internet and new digital devices into our classrooms offer endless ways to create stimulating, engaging learning environments. However, with the introduction of  these new tools into our school and our classrooms, we must be aware of the risks and threats that may accompany them.  We must educate our teachers, pupils and parents in recognising and avoiding the potential risks associated with using the Internet and digital devices.

During this school year, 2016 - 2017, a focus in our School Development Planning is the review of our E-Safety policy and procedures.  We will secure training and advice for staff along with identifying a 'preventative' programme for our pupils.  This will be delivered in a range of age appropriate means - through assemblies, performances, workshops, stories, cartoons and songs to enhance the work carried out in class.

As a parent, whilst our children take to this 'new' technology with ease, we struggle to keep up.

We aim to develop this page, to share information with Parents, so that we can strive together to ensure our children's safety
