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.
SAFER INTERNET DAY
On Tuesday 11th February, the children of St Georges will be celebrating 'Safer Internet Day 2020'. We pride ourselves at St George's for taking Internet Safety seriously.
This years focus will on encouraging the children to explore identity online and how the internet shapes the way they think of themselves and others.
We will celebrate difference in our school which will help us all to work towards creating a truly inclusive internet.
We want to inspire and empower our children at St. George's to support each other to be who they want to be, both online and offline.
