e-Safety

 

E-safety is integral to the computing curriculum. The importance of pupil’s awareness and understanding of safety online are vitally important.  While pupils should be encouraged to use the internet and develop their online skills, as adults we need to ensure all pupils are safe from potential harm. We teach children to cross roads safely; we should be teaching them how to use the internet safely too!

We teach our children to be SMART online:

Safe online

Meeting strangers

Accepting messages from strangers

Reliable information

Tell an adult if we are concerned

 

 

Should a child feel concerned about anything on line or through mobile communications, they must feel confident to speak to a trusted adult without fear of reprisal.  At St. Martin’s School we educate pupils about the internet and encourage them to speak freely of their experiences so they feel confident in discussing a concern.
