At Saltaire Primary School, the safety of our children is extremely important and e-Safety is a key aspect of our work. To help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material online, we have extensive security measures in place, which are monitored both internally and externally. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-safety policy. e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
Working together with parents ensures that we can be successful in keeping children safe online, providing a conistent e-Safety message at home and at school. By sharing and discussing online safety with your child, you can set clear expectations which your child understands. Banning the use of the internet and technology will not work and it could lead to a child being less likely to report a problem.
