E-Safety Policy Statement

 

Providing internet access raises educational standards and supports the professional work of staff.  We believe that the educational advantages of enabling children to have supervised access to the internet greatly outweigh the likely problems.  By using the computer in a variety of ways as well as knowing about other electronic applications children will gain confidence and capability to apply their ICT skills

 

Procedure:

Our E-safety Policy states our practice for safe use of ICT and internet and is displayed in all computer areas.

We have links on our web page for parents to find out more about Internet Safety
