ICT and e-Safety

Our e-safety policy can be read on our policies page

We ask pupils to sign an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which is a document that outlines how we expect them to behave when they are online.

These rules have been written to help keep everyone safe and happy when they are online or using technology. Sometimes things go wrong and people can get upset, but these rules should help us avoid it when possible, and be fair to everybody.

School systems and users are protected and monitored by security and filtering services to provide safe access to digital technologies. This means anything on a school device or using school networks/platforms/internet may be viewed by one of the staff members who are here to keep your children safe.

Please read our acceptable use policies for KS1 and KS2
