E-safety

Why is eSafety important?

Here at Haydon Abbey, we take every aspect of children’s’ safety very seriously. In the quickly evolving world of technology and social media, eSafety has never been more relevant.

 

Both the school and parents/carers need to ensure all is done to make technology an enjoyable, but safe, resource for learning and playing.

 

How does the school cover ESafety?

Quite often, the first experience the children get with many technologies is at school; it is therefore important they are taught how to use them correctly and safely. As a school, it is our duty to teach children about eSafety in computing lessons, assemblies and also through themed days.

 

Promoting ESafety at School

Regular esafety guidance is vital as there are constant changes in online communication and technologies and we constantly look for opportunities to promote esafety.

 

  • We provide opportunities within the school curriculum to teach about esafety.
  • Pupils are made aware of legislation such as data protection, copyright, safe use of images and intellectual property – which bring limitations but are designed to protect.
  • Pupils are aware of the impact of cyberbullying and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying.

 

Promoting ESafety in the Home

We also believe it is important for parents/carers to be aware of online and technological developments to ensure that they are able to protect their children in the home – where most online interaction takes place.
