Ofsted describe e-Safety as: the school's ability to protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology and to have the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incident where appropriate.
At Warmingham CE Primary School we believe in keeping your child safe both in and out of school.
Children and young people are using technology in new and exciting ways, enhancing and enriching their lives with the many tools on offer.
In their exploration of these technologies, young people are not only developing their ICT skills, but also a whole host of 'softer' skills - creativity, communication and networking skills, for example - which will be much in demand by the employers of the future.
Children are increasingly referred to as 'digital natives': citizens born into a digital world, who grow up surrounded by and emerged in the technology and tools of the digital age. Their confidence and skills in using this technology is typically high, but their knowledge and awareness of the inherent issues, risks and dangers is usually very low.
Children and young people need to be empowered to keep themselves safe - this isn't just a top down approach. Children will be children - pushing boundaries and taking risks. At a public swimming pool we have gates, put up signs, have lifeguards and shallow ends, but we also teach children how to swim.
Please download the e-safety leaflets and the presentation pack which offers tips and advice which you can use to help support your child when using the internet.
We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development.
Thank you for your continued support.
