Online Safety Ambassadors
Our e-safety ambassadors are Alfie, Taylor and Lilia from Year 5. They received training from Miss Bennett at lansdowne primary school and have made an action plan, which includes:
- Leading an assembly
- Designing a new logo and mascot (designed by the very talented artist, Alfie)
- Designing and handing out a new reward for children who demonstrate excellent awareness of the importance of safe on-line learning
- Organising and leading parent information workshops to support their children staying safe on line.
- Supporting the school senior leadership team in reviewing our e-safety curriculum
Our ambassadors are very clear in their role, which is to support children in their learning of how to stay safe on line and which actions they can take if they do not feel safe. They do not deal with specific on-line safety issues for children (our designated safeguarding leads deal with this).
Internet safety is always high on the agenda at Sturry CE Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place, which are constantly monitored both internally and externally, to prevent our pupils from coming into any potential danger or accessing unsuitable material.
Lessons are taught from Year 1 upward explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe when using the internet and working with technology. Click here to see an overview of the E-Safety coverage that we teach in our computing curriculum and click here to see our E-Safety policy.
Your help is still needed to prevent children accessing inappropriate material at home by way of filters and parental controls. Watch for Warning Signs Concerning Your Child's Online Activity.Look below at our extensive list of links and resources for Parents/Carers, Teachers and Young People.
