E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. At St George’s Cathedral Primary School, we believe parents and children should be given the best opportunity to thrive safely in a digital world. This is why we believe in helping our parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues, so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way.
At St George’s we consider the use of the web hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. However, as there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to manage this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials. Whilst throughout the academic year, each class has discussions and e-safety lessons about how we can all stay safe online and the dangers that they might come across when using the internet.
