The internet is a tool that your child will use for a wide range of activities both at school and at home.
It is important that children know how to be safe when they are online. We ensure that e-safety issues are addressed regularly throughout the school year so that children know how to keep themselves safe. During the Autumn term, we have a specific focus on online safety as part of our P.S.H.E. curriculum.
The following rules are displayed in Key Stage 2 classrooms and are discussed with children on a regular basis:
I will only use the internet when I have permission and/or being supervised by a teacher.
I will not give any personal details to anyone over the Internet.
I will not arrange to meet anyone over the Internet.
I will report anything I see or receive that worries me.
I will not send unsuitable e-mail messages.
I will respect the privacy of others. I will not publish their names, addresses, phone numbers, or photographs.
In Key Stage 1, children are taught to tell an adult if they see anything online that worries them and if they come across anything they are not sure of. Online safety in Key Stage 1 is taught through discussion and through stories.
More information relating to online safety can be found in our Online Safety Policy, here.

When should I report to CEOP?
CEOP help children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be inappropriate chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to us by clicking the link above.
