Every child has the right to privacy. The law should protect the child’s private, family and home life.
Wolviston Primary believes that online safety (e-Safety) is an essential element of safeguarding children and adults in the digital world, when using technology such as computers, mobile phones or games consoles.Wolviston Primary identifies that the internet and information communication technologies are an important part of everyday life so children must be supported to be able to learn how to develop strategies to manage and respond to risk so they can be empowered to build resilience online. We know we have a duty to provide the school community with quality Internet access to raise education standards, promote pupil achievement, support professional work of staff and enhance the schools management functions. Wolviston Primary also identifies that with this there is a clear duty to ensure that children are protected from potential harm online.
Our school community –
- Discusses, monitors and reviews our e-safety policy on a regular basis.
- Supports staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
- Ensures that pupils are aware, through e-safety education, of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT. Additionally, we ensure that all e-safety concerns are dealt with sensitively and effectively and that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents, in line with our e-safety reporting procedures.
- Provides opportunities for parents/carers to receive e-safety education and information to enable them to support their children in developing good e-safety behaviour. The school will report back to parents / carers regarding esafety concerns. Parents/carers in turn work with the school to uphold the e-safety policy.
- Seeks to learn from e-safety good practice elsewhere and utilises the support of the LA and relevant organisations
