At Glebe Primary School we take the safety of our pupils in all aspects of their life very seriously. Within that remit we are committed to educating our pupils to be safe internet users and in supporting parents with this very important skill at home too.
Technology is a growing part of all our lives. Both in and out of school we have access to a range of technological resources that help bring learning to life.
As technology changes, so to do the potential dangers faced by our children as they navigate the digital world, so, at our school, learning how to avoid risks online is a key part of the school's safeguarding agenda.
E-safety is a vital life skill and our school aims to protect and educate staff and pupils and support them in developing safe online behaviours both at school and at home.
Children are taught and reminded to 'Zip it - don’t give out your personal information, Block it – block people or sites that are harmful or upsetting and Flag it – tell someone if you see anything worrying.'
Support for our parents/carers
If you are concerned or worried about how to approach the subject of the internet, some great resources can be found here.
