In an ever-changing world, we prepare our children to access the online world safely.
Regular E-safety lessons are taught in all year-groups (age-appropriate) and children take part in E-safety assemblies. The content includes how to deal with strangers online, keeping personal details safe, and what to do about e-bullying.
Pupils and parents sign a Computing User Agreement at the start of each academic year. Parents are encouraged to use the rules at home as well. A copy of this can be found here: Computing User Agreement
The agreement references PEGI. This is the system used to categorise the suitability of games in terms of content. We ask that children do not play games rated above PEGI 3 and 7. It is illegal to sell PEGI 12 and upwards games to underage individuals, and so the rating system provides an excellent and enforceable guide to the suitability of games. More information about PEGI can be found by clicking the link: PEGI Games Categories
Later in the year, our E-Safety week centres around Safer Internet Day. The next Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday 9th February 2021. More information can be found here: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2021
