E-Safety at Springfield Primary Academy
What is E-Safety?
E-Safety highlights the importance of educating our children about the benefits, risk and responsibilities of using a wide range of technology both in and out of school.
E-Safety promotes the safeguarding of children and young people in the digital world. It makes sure that children know how to use technology in a safe and positive way.
Protection at School
When in school, your child is protected in many ways.
Children are taught about appropriate content during computing lessons
Forensic software on our school ICT network that captures incidents of inappropriate use, all of which are investigated.
Internet virus and malware protection
Each child will bring home a School Internet Acceptable Use Agreement which is talked about in school and should be discussed at home as well. Parents and children then sign the agreement to say that they agree to use the internet safely and appropriately in school.
The latest E-safety & Social Media Policies are available from the Policies section of the school website. Please click on the links below for further information on E-safety.
