E - safety Aims for 2017 – 2018
This contact form can be used by parents and pupils alike to report anything of concern regarding e-safety.
Children at Burton upon Stather Primary use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and we at Burton want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We also have regular 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:
Keep your computer in a shared area: Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
Facebook/bebo/Myspace:Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.
We have an active E-Safety Group in our School. The Group is made up of:
The group meet on a regular basis to discuss E-Safety matters and work through priorities and set strategy for E-Safety going forward at our School.
The group have a broad knowledge and are a point of reference or contact for Parents, Staff or Pupils should anyone have any concerns or questions on any matter regarding E-Safety.
