May 2022: Poster competition launched - please see below for information
During the lockdown the use of electronic devices by younger children increased significantly. This page contains our Online Safety Policy and useful links and support for parents and children in staying safe online.
Our lead teacher for Online Safety is Mr James Almond (Vice Principal)
Poster Competition - closing date 10th June 2022
We know that an increasing number of children are spending more time online than ever before (99% of children went online in 2021 with 60% of 3-11s playing online games – Ofcom report 2022 ) and we need some new posters advising how to stay safe online designed by children in school.
We would like entries that can be used as posters around school and also some that are more suitable for a postcard that we can share with others.
Please see the following information that will help with your entries:
- Closing date Friday 10th June
- Please write name and class/year group neatly on the back and hand to your class teacher.
- There will be winners from EYFS, KS1 and KS2
- Use A5 (half of A4), A4 or A3 sized paper for your entry
- Try to fill the space with colour (although you can choose to have a white background)
- Make sure your writing is clear (probably best not to use joined writing)
- Use pictures and writing
- Digital entries accepted as well
The above information has been shared with children during an assembly. Children may enter as many times as they like. Judging will be carried out by our Values Ambassadors and Y3 who have been learning about online safety this term. Good luck.
In 2018 a new law was made that keeps our pupils' information safe – things like their address, date of birth and phone number. The school and other people collect and use information for all kinds of reasons, and the new law tells them exactly what they are allowed to do with the information collected. The policies below will tell you how we will collect information about our pupils, how we will record it and how we will use it.
CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre)
