E Safety Officer - Mr P Gaskin (email@example.com)
E Safety Governor - Mr H Price (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We would like to take the opportunity to inform parents that social network sites and other internet facilities such as ‘YouTube’ are unavailable through the school network. We would also like to remind parents that ‘social networking sites’ such as ‘Facebook, Instagram etc are age restricted and should not be available to primary school aged children.
The school policy regarding e-safety is regularly reviewed and we carefully consider how we can monitor and report any inappropriate use of the internet outside school, including social networking sites and examples of cyber- bullying. We wish to work alongside parents to ensure the children are safe and secure in their use of the internet. We encourage you to monitor your child’s activity and check that any games being played are not exposing the children to inappropriate material and are age appropriate. Informing us of any cyber-bullying incidents outside of school will enable us to better support your child.
If parents/carers wish to do this please talk to the office staff and they will pass onto the child protection officer who will assess the situation and deal with the matter in a discrete and appropriate manner.
E- Safety Day -
Teaching our children to use the internet safely is very important to us and we take part in the National E-Safety event annually but we support E- safety throughout the curriculum all year. The children have a presentation about what is meant by E- safety and where they can go for support and ideas.
If any parent wishes to discuss the school policy or any other aspects of E Safety, please contact either Mr Gaskin or Mr Price (contact details above).
ThinkUknow have published some useful guides for parents on keeping your child safe online and about various social media sites. We have included copies of them here but do visit this website for more useful information to support your child safety on line.
