At Stanion C.E Primary School we have guidelines for the children and staff regarding safe use of ICT (information, communication technology) and the internet.
If you ever have any concerns about your child’s safety online you should contact CEOP (Child exploitation and Online Police). If your concerns are linked to school, then please inform your child’s school teacher or go directly to a member of the Senior Management Team (i.e. the Headteacher or the Deputy Headteacher).
Our intent to ensure all of our pupils have an understanding of how to connect and communicate with others safely and respectfully with the aim of preparing them for later life. Our Computing curriculum is designed to educate children in an engaging and purposeful way. As a school, we ensure Online Safety is of paramount importance and each class receives an Online Safety lesson at the beginning of each half-term using the Rising Stars Switched On online safety scheme.
We believe that the 5 pillars to online safety and wellbeing are:
- Online behaviour
- Online activity
- Online resilience
- Online wellbeing
- Online role models
Throughout our explicit Online Safety teaching we address and discuss these areas and so build confidence in the children’s abilities to deal with online safety issues if and when they arise. References to online safety are also made throughout the ilearn2 scheme of work.
If you would like resources to help you better inform your child about E-safety there are some good resources to be found on Childnet.
