Welcome to our SHARP!
This is our dedicated webpage on e-safety. We want our learners to be able to use different technology in school but to make sure everyone is safe and always respected. Below is our e-safety rules poster which is displayed in all our classrooms.
We promote and teach online safety in a wide range of ways. We deliver a broad curriculum covering the many areas of e-safety which are appropriate for each of our learners. We adopt a whole-school approach in educating our learners and are responsive to any issues that arise and ensure parents and children are supported. We do regular follow up work and take part in Safer Internet Day every year.
All our staff complete online safety training through the National Online Safety resource, and we encourage all our parents to register too where there are guides and explainer videos as well a range of training modules for parents. Please ask the school for the link to register with National Online Safety as a parent/carer.
We have our own Online Safety guide, our one-stop resource for parents and carers which brings together a wealth of information, links, and advice that we hope you will find very useful – please click here view it: Online Safety
If you need any further assistance with anything covered in our new guide, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help.
