Children are taught how to keep themselves and their personal details safe whilst using the Internet, and Internet safety rules are displayed in all classrooms. Parents and children are asked to agree to uphold the school’s e-safety policy. As part of the curriculum children’s work may occasionally be electronically published. Appropriate images and video that include children may be published, on password protected sites as well as the school website, subject to the school rule that photographs will not be accompanied by pupil names. Parents with any concerns regarding online safety are encouraged to see the Computing Leader/Online Safety Officer (Mr Head) to discuss their concerns.
