As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet. We strongly believe that the use of the web is hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. But, because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
At the start of the school year, and throughout the year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. As your child joins the school in Y3, we ask you to sign an Acceptable Use Agreement (see E-Safety Policies & Documents), so that we know they have read and understood our school's rules on staying safe. We celebrate Safer Internet Week in February each year and have a programme of online safety lessons as part of the Computing and PSHE curriculum.
