At Flintham Primary School we take safeguarding very seriously and extend our concerns to the safety of our children when using ICT. The Internet is an invaluable tool for life-long learning and communication, we just have to help our children learn to use this invaluable tool safely.
Children and young people are prone to the same kind of risks (including spam and scam emails, fraud and identify theft) However, there are also other, more sinister threats that may result from accessing the internet, such as inappropriate contact from people who may wish to abuse, exploit or bully them and exposure to inappropriate material.
In school, we have regular ‘e-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online as well as an e-safety assembly every term. E-safety lies at the heart of our ICT planning and opportunities are built into our teaching time in order to equip children with the relevant skills to deal with any e-safety issues.
All our staff and children have signed an Acceptable Use Agreement in line with our e-safety policy.
If you have any questions regarding E-Safety, we would be happy to help. Please come and talk to Mrs Kim Bartlett, Headteacher.
