We understand that computer technology is an essential resource for supporting teaching and learning. The internet, and other digital and information technologies, open up opportunities for pupils and play an important role in their everyday lives.
We recognise the importance of promoting the use of computer technology throughout the curriculum, we also understand the need for safe internet access and appropriate use.
Our school aims to ensure appropriate and safe use of the internet and other digital technology devices by all pupils and staff.
The school is committed to providing a safe learning and teaching environment for all pupils and staff, and has implemented important controls to prevent any harmful risks in accordance with the advice contained in this document.
Are your children safe online?
There are so many 'connected' devices in our houses and in children's lives that it is difficult to keep up to date with all the different ways children access 'on-line' material.
At school we have a filtered internet connection and we encourage the childen to access 'safe' sites at home. We provide a moderated online VLE (virtual learning environment) and we also provide 'safe' learning sites for children to use.
All children and staff are made aware of the school's 'Acceptable Use Policy' which can be viewed here:
DITTO is a free online safety (e-safety) magazine for schools, organisations and parents to keep you up to date with risks, issues, advice and guidance related to keeping children safe online, with a view to enjoying and learning about technology. A new edition is released approx. every 6 weeks.
