At Abbot Alphege Academy we aim to provide children with a Computing and PSHE curriculum that enables them to develop as safe internet users.
The Internet has fast become part of our daily lives and routine. Whether this be as a tool to contact friends and family, research interests, aid learning or for our jobs. It is a fantastic tool that offers so many benefits.
However, with the ever changing nature of the internet and how it is used it is important that we start developing the relevant e-safety skills when age appropriate. At Abbot Alphege we teach e-Safety as part of our computing and PSHE curriculum. Naturally, this is something many parents like to reinforce at home and so we recommend that you follow the web links below in order to find out more.
For further E-safety guidance please see these websites:
- Think-u-know ages 5-7 guidance, 8-11 guidance and guidance for parents and carers
- Parents Info
- Childnet international
- Safer Internet Organisation
The school adheres to the following policies in respect of E-safety:
- AAA E-safety Policy
- South West Grid for Learning E-Safety Policy
- Social Media Policy (applicable to both AAA and WASPS)
