In an ever changing technological world it is important to us that we ensure our pupils are kept safe when accessing the internet. At Heartwood CE VC Primary and Nursery School we embrace the positive effects that technology can have upon our learning but ensure that the risks when using the internet are minimised and monitored to ensure that all our pupils are kept safe.
e-Safety is promoted in our school through the use of a Safer Internet Day, e-Safety posters in all computing areas and the teaching of e-Safety as part of our PSHE learning. e-Safety is also taught through our Computing curriculum (a breakdown of this for each year group is detailed below).
A full printed copies of our policies are available on request.
Emily McMillen, Headteacher and DSL, is the school's designated Online Safety lead.
