E-safety

With this is mind we have a dedicated ICT and e-safety governor, Mr Derek Arm and our ICT with e-safety policy is updated twice yearly. We have also adopted a separate Social Networking policy.

We raise awareness of e-safety through the teaching of ICT and acknowledge Safer Internet Day each February with classroom activities and dedicated assemblies.

At Gorsemoor all student access to the internet is supervised and monitored by school. The CEOP report button appears on the main page of the school web site. E-Safety codes of conduct are signed by pupils and parents, which make clear expectations regarding the responsible use of ICT including the use of mobile technologies. Pupils also have a copy in their homework diaries signed annually. All Staff (including visiting students and parent helpers) also complete an e-safety code of conduct.

The winner of our 2017 Internet Safety poster competition was Imogen, Y6DLC

Internet and e-safety form an integral part of ICT at Gorsemoor. We understand that use of the internet is expanding and it is becoming an important part of learning and communication. This brings pupils into contact with a wider range of information, the scope and nature of which may - or may not - be appropriate for the pupil. There are also wider dangers that e-mail and chat, and indeed telephone and text messages could bring as a means of anonymous communication with pupils.
