Our Internet & e-Safety Rules

Internet and eSafety Policy

Please also see our acceptable use and loan of equipment policies

eSafety is built into our computing and PSHE curriculum as well as being highlighted by each class school council member

We hold our annual eSafety assembly as well as invite parents into school for an eSafety session

Securus software is used within school which highlights any misuse

If children by any chance come across anything inappropriate they know about the CEOP button or to immediately tell an adult

Please ensure that our e-safety administrator knows if you do not wish your child to have any pictures, videos or work published on the Internet or use the Videoconferencing facilities.  No work or pictures will ever be labelled with a child's name.

No child is permitted to access the internet when alone or type in the URL.

No child is allowed to use a general search engine - only an approved child filtered one.

No child is allowed to access social networking sites.
