Internet Safety

THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE WE CAN GIVE YOU IS NEVER PUT ANYTHING ONLINE THAT YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE ON THE SIDE OF A DOUBLE DECKER BUS...

We have moved with the times in ICT and have a good supply of wi-fi netbooks which the children use on a daily basis for their work. We take internet safety seriously in our school and the latest Ofsted report agreed with us that the children have a good understanding of how to keep safe including with cyber-bullying. There is strict internet security in school and we teach children how to use the internet safely .

Our eSafety Policy describes how we go about safeguarding pupils in this aspect of their lives.

There are two files here - one is a set of 'rules' for using the internet safely, the other is advice from parentline plus about how to avoid cyberbullying. Click on each of the documents to download a copy.

Mission Statement

We celebrate our Anglican Foundation and are committed to promoting a love of learning and the very highest academic expectations. We believe every child is entitled to a rich education which promotes self-confidence and a healthy mind and body. We are a school where prayer forms an integral part of the school day and which celebrates and shows respect for our children’s faiths and for the faiths and cultures of other people. We are determined to help our children become the best person they can be.

Safeguarding

The school’s responsibilities relating to safeguarding are extensive and very important. Staff have to attend regular safeguarding training sessions as does the designated safeguarding Governor. Safeguarding requirements are regularly changed and constantly updated. The latest regulations and advice relating to safeguarding in schools can be found on the following links:

 Keeping Children Safe in Education (2015)

Safeguarding and Permissions

The Parental Information and Permissions document contains vital information about keeping your child safe at school. The Parental Permissions form provides a convenient way for you to provide permission for your child to take part in all school activities.

The School's responsibilities regarding Safeguarding are extensive and very important.

 Here is what the leading Safeguarding Manager had to say about our procedures:  "I am hoping that all schools can reach the levels you have in looking after your pupils, staff and reassuring parents/carers you are working hard to help children feel safe and happy".

References to the current regulations covering safeguarding are provided on the Official Bits page.
