Teaching the children about internet safety is part of the National Curriculum and an area that we feel very strongly about. We reinforce the importance of safe searching, recognising and reporting cyber bullying, personal information security and safety from unknown individuals. We teach these areas through direct lessons, assemblies, computing days, taking part in National Internet Safety Week and by assisting our Year 6 Junior Safety Officers to run competitions and share during assemblies.
We have two documents which we use to help support our learning and help protect children - the first, a no consent form which you elect to sign - this means we will not publish images of any sort of your children without your permission and the second, our reference to the Freedom of Information Act showing the policies we use to address the issues surrounding social media.
Internet safety is an issue for parents to also address in the home environment and we wish to support parent to do so.
The CEOP website will help inform both you as parents and your children on internet safety. If you require any advice or additional information then please contact us.
The safeguarding of children at Eaton is extremely important to us. Policies and procedures are in place to ensure the children in our school are safe not only in this building but at home as well.
Eaton Primary School recognises that every member of its staff has a key role in the prevention of harm, early identification, intervention and support for pupils at risk of significant harm and will endeavour to provide an environment where children are valued, are safe and know that their concerns will be taken seriously.
We aim to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone feels happy, safe and secure. We promote an atmosphere of truth and honesty in which everyone feels valued and shows respect for each other and their surroundings. As a school we are committed to high expectations and continuous improvement. We adopt a child centred approach to high quality teaching and learning, inspiring everyone to achieve their full potential.
Please see our Child Protection and Safeguarding policy for more in depth details on the procedures in place at Eaton:
