At Orleans Primary School, we take online safety extremely seriously. We believe that it is the right of all children to feel safe and secure when using technology. We work with staff, pupils and parents/carers to value the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourage responsible use of ICT and follow agreed policies to minimise potential online safety risk.
We discuss, monitor and review our online safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Behaviour and Anti-Bullying policies. We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and the embedding of online safety across the whole school curriculum.
We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential online safety risks associated with the use of ICT and that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and abide by the school’s Online Safety Policy.
The school has age appropriate online safety training for pupils, we also hold online safety sessions for parents, staff and governors which are presented by Peter Cowley (the Achieving for Children Lead Adviser for Online Services and Safety).
