The e–Safety Policy is part of the ICT and Safeguarding Policies. It relates to other policies including those for behaviour, anti-bullying, personal, social and health education (PSHE) and for citizenship.
The school has a E–Safety Coordinator, Mrs S Lednor. She is both Designated Child Protection Coordinator and the E-safety Coordinator as the roles overlap.
The e–Safety Policy and its implementation are reviewed annually. Our e–Safety Policy has been written by the school, building on the KCC e–Safety Policy and government guidance.
It has been agreed by the Senior Leadership Team and approved by governors. Please see our e-Safety Policy for more information.
Pupils are not permitted to bring mobile phones or iPads to school on the grounds that they are valuable and may be lost or stolen.
However, we recognise that in Year Five and Year Six mobile phones may have a part to play in securing pupils’ personal safety before and after school and on journeys to and from school.
Our expectation is that in all other year groups pupils will be collected by an adult or responsible person. If a pupil needs to contact his/her parents/carers they will be allowed to use a school phone. If parents need to contact children urgently they should phone the school office and a message will be relayed promptly.
