E-Safety at Kilham School

 

The purpose of this page is to give parents information about E-Safety.

 

A definition of E-Safety:

E-safety can be defined as being safe from risks to personal safety and wellbeing when using technology, including all fixed and mobile devices that allow access to the internet as well as those that are used to communicate electronically. This includes personal computers, laptops, mobile phones and gaming consoles.

 

The E-Safety Coordinator at Kilham CE Primary is Mrs Lisa Dowkes, who can be contacted through the school office. Keeping our children safe on the internet and while using technology is a priority for our school. Elements of E-Safety are built into ICT lessons where opportunities arise, and there are several specific E-Safety ICT lessons which take place each term for all classes. To guide our teachers in this process, we use a scheme of work for 'Computing' from 2Simple Purple Mash, which includes specific E-Safety content.

 

Our E-Safety Policy and updated 'Acceptable Use Policy' for pupils and staff are updated within school and available to view if required.

 

If you have any questions or issues regarding E-Safety please contact school.

A good starting point for parents and teachers is the Internet Matters website.
