E-safety/Bullying

E-Safety Statement

St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School works with staff, pupils and parents to create 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.

We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Pupil Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies.

We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.

We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies, that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and abide by the school’s e-safety policy.

Guidance notes for Parents re. e-safety.

Link to the ‘Thinkuknow’ website homepage with pages for 5 – 7, 8 – 10, 11 – 16 year olds, parents and teachers.
It’s a really good idea to look at the appropriate pages together with your child, so that you can discuss any issues which arise and help them learn about e-safety.
