Online Safety Policy - September 2021
We value Computing within our school and acknowledge the wealth of resources it offers for us all as learners and different approaches to learning that it supports.
As a community, it is really important that we all work together to ensure that we all stay safe when using technology. Online Safety is no longer just talking about the internet but making safe and responsible choices when using a whole host of technologies such as; computers, games consoles (such as Xbox), mobile phones, televisions, tablets, ipads and the list continues to grow!
At school, we embed Online safety in our school curriculum. We work closely with Herts for Learning to ensure that we are up to date with current advice and practice.
Any concerns regarding Online Safety should be brought to the immediate attention of the acting head teacher, Mrs J Tucker who is our Online-Safety co-ordinator.
We have added some documents below that contain useful information on how to keep your children safe, tips on how to initiate conversations around the subject of Online Safety and specific advice on online gaming and parental controls.
Expectations and responsibilities for parents:
- support the school’s approach to online safety and not upload or add any text, image, sound or videos that could upset or offend any member of the school community, or bring the school name into disrepute.
- support the school’s policy and help prevent their child/ren from signing up to services such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube whilst they are underage (13+in most cases).
- close online accounts if the school finds that these accounts are active for an underage child.
Following our Safer Internet workshop for years 5 & 6, please find below the help sheets discussed.
