The school has a clear E-Safety and Acceptable Use Policy. All members of staff and pupils are expected to sign the acceptable use policy at the start of their time at the school.
The school uses Smartie the Penguin as a mascot to champion online safety. He is used to remind children that “Before you click, click, click, you need to think, think, think… and tell someone.” We also ensure that children are familiar with the story of the PenguinPig.
The school only publishes images of children on the school website where permission has been sought from parents.
The school has an appropriate filtering service provided by OpenHive. This prevents any unsuitable material from getting through to our computer system.
Children are taught how to be safe online through our computing curriculum. There is a clear focus for each half term.
Each year we take part in Internet Safety Day to further highlight the importance of being safe online.
We hold internet safety workshops for parents, highlighting what can be done at home to keep children safe online and to raise awareness of current issues.
We have a CEOP button on our website which allows children, teachers and parents to report concerns over internet use.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
