Maintaining your child’s safety while online is a priority for all staff in school. As the use of technology continues to expand, so do our procedures regarding e-safety. At Shelley First School we pride ourselves on our children being confident, safe users of all technology; responsible teaching of e-safety therefore goes hand-in-hand with our use of ICT across the curriculum.
E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our Online Safety Policy.
Each child, along with their parent or legal guardian, is expected to sign and adhere to the school’s Acceptable Use Policy. We currently have one acceptable use policy for use by all pupils throughout school. We understand that there are elements that younger children may not understand completely, but these elements will be taught in school to ensure the children use the internet in an appropriate way. Each Autumn term, teachers will remind the children in their class of the agreement and help them understand how this helps them to stay safe.
