At Shottermill Juniors, we take E-Safety very seriously. We believe in a culture of vigilance to ensure children are safe in school, whilst also teaching them to understand and manage the risks involved in accessing the online world.
We hold regular E-Safety talks in school to provide parents with key information and updates in our ever-changing world of technology and we regularly review our E-Safety and Acceptable Use Policy to ensure they are reflective of current DfE guidance and good practice. Please see below to download our e-safety policy and to see the last parent e-safety presentation notes.
A filtered internet service is used in school to block access to unsuitable website and we have rigorous systems in place to monitor the content that children are searching for. All staff members are made aware of the importance of monitoring children's use of technology in school but also teaching children how to use technology in and out of school safely, through E-Safety lessons at the start of every topic.
We regularly send our parents information leaflets on the emerging risks that children may encounter when being online. These are also displayed below.
Please note, that school operates a strict NO MOBILE PHONES policy on school premises. This includes any wearable technology which can connect to the internet (e.g. Smartwatches).
