At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, e-safety is an important part of keeping our children safe. We work to ensure all our pupils know how to be safe and responsible users online, whilst being aware of the risks associated with the internet, both in and out of school.
E-safety is defined as educating people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using the internet. E-safety is:
- Safeguarding children in the digital world
- Not about restricting children, but educating them
- Supporting children and young people to develop safer online behaviours both in and out of school.
- Being educated ourselves to be able to support and help our children
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we promote and teach e-safety in the following ways:
- Acceptable Use Policy for Staff, Governors, Pupils and Parents
- E-safety lessons for all pupils in all year groups.
- E-Safety Training for Staff, Pupils, Parents and Governors.
- E-safety assemblies for Pupils
- Targeted e-safety workshops for year groups
- Celebrate Safer Internet Day
- Internet Filtering on the school system
- ICT Rules & Social Networking Rules
- Teach the E-safety Hand for sharing personal information
- Fronter e-safety page for Parents
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with Parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent.
Please find below our School Acceptable Use and E-safety Policy and some information to suppport e-safety at home including the use of Social Media sites.
You can also find more information and guidance on our E-safety Parents room on Fronter.
