“Is your child safe online?”
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Caldecott. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our (E-Safety policy). E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. We do this in both computing lessons and in PHSE lessons.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
SCARF (our PHSE scheme provider) have provided this really helpful information page about helping to keep your child safer on line.
At school, we teach the children to be safer on line by discussing the SMART Rules (KS2), SAFE Rules (KS1) and Digiduck in EYFS.
Here is a link to the posters explaining the rules we use.
We will also be posting a weekly E-Safety information sheet about different apps, practices and issues around E-Safety. They are from National Online Agency and are titled Wake up Wednesday. Please look out for these on the school Class Dojo page.
