At Eaton, we take your children's security very seriously. In a school setting, we are able to monitor and control a wide variety of issues which may arise from internet use.
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.
We have also been working with the NSPCC to raise awareness of internet safety. Please find below documents that you may find useful in supporting your child to be safe online.
