Internet Safety Day 2023
This year we asked for interested pupils to apply to become E-safety Ambassadors. The successful candidates: Georgie, Milly and Troy then represented the school and in collaboration with pupils at Claydon, Elmstead and Frinton Primaries designed their own materials to advise others on the importance of e-safety. Below are the posters and power points they created.
At Great Bentley Primary School we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on E-safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the Internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.
Please take time to read the e-safety cards that clearly explain how to create and adjust parental controls to keep your children safe online.
As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet only in teacher supervised lessons. We strongly believe that the use of the web and email is hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. But because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
At the start of the school year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. We then ask every child in the school to sign our school policy so that we know they have read and understood our school's rules on staying safe. Every class covers E-safety in their computing lessons every half term to ensure our children do not forget its importance.
