E-Safety in the Curriculum
ICT and online resources are increasingly used across the curriculum. We believe it is essential for E-Safety guidance to be given to the pupils on a regular and meaningful basis. E-Safety is embedded within our curriculum and we continually look for new opportunities to promote E-Safety. Educating pupils about the online risks that they may encounter outside school is delivered as part of the taught curriculum and also informally when opportunities arise.
Pupils are taught about being safe online including the use of privacy settings, copyright, respecting other people’s information, safe use of images and other important areas through discussion, modelling and appropriate activities.
Pupils are aware of the impact of Cyber bullying and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying. Pupils are also aware of where to seek advice or help if they experience problems when using the internet and related technologies; i.e. parent/ carer, teacher/ trusted staff member.
Safeguarding is the responsibility of the whole community, staff, governors, parents, volunteers and the wider community. Should you have a concern please speak to one of our safeguarding team - Ms Warren, Mrs Brown, Mrs Siedle or Miss Hatton.
