A huge thank you to Simon Aston, the Northamptonshire County Council’s e-Safety Officer for delivering a fantastic E-Safety training session for parents on Tuesday 6th December 2016. This was well attended by parents and feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
The world of the internet and associated dangers are ever changing. We are fortunate that our children have parents such as yourselves that protect your children so well, but it is good to stay aware of all of current issues. We will be offering these sessions again in the future, so if you couldn’t get to this session, there will be another opportunity for you to attend.
E-SAFETY AT PRESTON HEDGE’S
At Preston Hedge’s we take e-safety very seriously. Our pupils follow an acceptable use policy which ensures that our pupils use ICT equipment appropriately.We have an e-safety assembly each term for all pupils, where we discuss how to use technology and the internet, and where we ensure that our pupils recognise what they need to do in order to keep themselves safe. E-safety is fully embedded within our ICT curriculum, and our e-safety lessons use the recommended CEOP’s ‘thinkuknow’ education programme, which has been specifically created for primary school children.
In order to ensure that all members of the school community feel confident about keeping our children safe on line, we will be offering an e-Safety meeting provided for parents over the next few months. This will be provided by an external expert and the date will be confirmed shortly.
