Glenthorne Community Primary School works with staff, pupils and parents / carers 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 online 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 online safety across the whole school curriculum.
We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential online-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 online-safety policy. We provide opportunities for parents/carers to receive online-safety education and information, to enable them to support their children in developing good online-safety behaviour.
