E-SafetyIn this section...
We recognise at Barrow Hedges that computing is developing in schools and providing wonderful, new and exciting ways for pupils to learn both computing skills and to deliver other curriculum subjects. As a school we have a unique role, protecting children, while preparing them for life outside of school; a life that now includes an online world. Our computing curriculum includes an element of E-Safety each term. We aim to educate and empower pupils so they understand the risks, build resilience and ultimately become good "cyber citizens".
During Safer Internet Day in February 2016, the children ‘took a pledge’ to say that they commit to safe and responsible use of technology. The children were taught about keeping safe when using the internet through a special assembly and a series of lessons. We take the E-Safety pledge annually and will do so again in February 2017.
We expect all children at Barrow Hedges to follow our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) when using technology at school. Click on the link below to download a copy (it could be useful at home too). In addition, our E-Safety Policy can be found under the parents tab, then policies.
Keeping children safe online is a shared responsibility. To help you to support us with this and to help your child to learn to use the internet safely at home, here are some links and documents we hope you will find useful below:
