E-Safety - Safeguarding our Children



In today's fast moving technological era, parents and carers cannot afford to stand back and let children 'just get on with it'. Our fear of not knowing anything about 'tweeting', 'social networking' (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc) only adds to the increased risk of this important learning and socialising source being abused.

Our children are techno natives, they have grown up in a world of the Internet, computer games, mobile telephones and tablets to name but a few. Some adults are techno novices and therefore need to be made aware of the safety issues surrounding these areas. 


At Sutton-on-Trent Primary School all children have a weekly Computing skills lesson with Miss Fendley and often use the internet for their learning.  The use of the internet in school runs side by side with our school Acceptable Internet Use  Policy which all children and staff are made aware of.


For more information on Acceptable Internet Use please look at our Safeguarding and Behaviour Policies sections on the website.

Lorna Naylor, Nottinghamshire County Council's Anti-bullying Co-ordinator, gave an e-safety presentation at our school for staff and parents. Please open the document below for a copy of the information she handed out.
Below are some useful links for parents and carers to gain more knowledge of what is available to their children.
