As a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
Pupils have a right to access these systems in a safe and controlled way and the responsibility to use the systems carefully and within the guidelines set at school.
In school we teach specific Internet Safety modules in Year 2 and Year 5 but pupils are regularly reminded of the issues associated with using the internet.
In recent years there has been a convergence of different technologies. As well as computers, today’s games consoles allow us to play more than just games. We can now also play DVDs, go online & chat to the person we are playing with. So your child may be playing a game with someone from the other side of the world and much more besides!
