At The Alderton, we take every effort to ensure our pupils and staff stay safe when using the internet and other technologies.
The Alderton hosts parent workshops to support with e-safety at home. The presentation for our lastest workshop can be viewed by clicking....
In modern day society, e-safety is a fundamental requirement that all should be aware of. The Alderton has developed its own 'E-Safety' Policy which reflects the requirements of current online safety and ensures that children, staff and parents have adequate support in maintaining their online presence.
The Policy also outlines how, as a school, we teach and promote e-safety, along with its dangers, to all children from Year 3 to Year 6. A clear and reflective programme is present across the school so that all children can develop an understanding of e-safety.
E-Safety is a skill that should be developed at school and at home. Developing children's knowledge of the online world is beneficial to their daily use of the internet. Reinforcing The Alderton’s e-safety message helps to protect the children online in and out of school. Here are some useful links to E-Safety websites, videos and games.
Our full E-Safety Policy is viewable via the links below.
In addition to our E-Safety Policy, a Devices policy and a Social Network policy have also been written to ensure the correct use of both school devices (such as iPads) and personal devices (such as mobile phones) and to help understand what a safe use of social media is.
If you have any questions, enquiries or concerns about E-Safety then please feel free to contact Mr. Harrison.
Tips for staying safe online:
· Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
· Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
