E-Safety at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School
St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School recognises the value of utilising computing systems to support and facilitate learning. The school E-safety Policy outlines the steps taken and procedures that are in place to help to safeguard members of the school community when accessing computing systems. This policy operates in conjunction with other school policies including the behaviour, bullying, curriculum, data protection and safeguarding policies.
St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School is working towards the 360 degree safe accreditation.
We have an Online Safety Ambassadors group which consists of Governors, Teaching staff and children. Their role is to :
Develop and monitor Safe Rules for Using Computers
Providing Top Tips for Pupils
Contributing to the School Blog/website
Advising the staff on current apps/trends/social media/hardware
Deliver assemblies – “what to do if you are worried” (Already done!)
Develop and create school displays including Click CEOP
Peer mentoring/buddies e.g. Year 6 mentoring KS1
The use of computing systems is monitored throughout the school.
