Safeguarding is a serious matter; at New Brighton Primary School we use technology and the Internet extensively across all areas of the curriculum.
Online safeguarding, known as e-safety is an area that is constantly evolving and as such this policy will be reviewed on an annual basis or in response to an e-safety incident, whichever is sooner.
The primary purpose of this policy is twofold:
- To ensure the requirement to empower the whole school community with the knowledge to stay safe and risk free is met.
- To ensure risks are identified, assessed and mitigated (where possible) in order to reduce any foreseeability of harm to the student or liability to the school.
This policy is available for anybody to read on the New Brighton Primary School website; upon review all members of staff will sign as read and understood both the e-safety policy and the Staff Acceptable Use Policy. A copy of this policy and the Students Acceptable Use Policy will be sent home with students upon admission with a permission slip. Upon return of the signed permission slip and acceptance of the terms and conditions, students will be permitted access to school technology including the Internet.
