E-Safety At Cawthorne

At Cawthorne, we understand that computer technology is an essential resource for supporting teaching and learning. The internet, and other digital and information technologies, open up opportunities for our children and play an important role in their everyday lives.

We recognise that today’s children are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives
seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. Our Digital Safeguarding policy and day-to-day e-safety procedures have due regard to the most recent DFE non-statutory guidance entitled ‘Teaching online safety in school’ (June 2019). This helps to teach our pupils how to stay safe online, within both new and existing school subjects (including Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education, Health Education, Citizenship and Computing). We teach pupils about the underpinning knowledge and behaviours that can help them to navigate the online world safely and confidently regardless of the device, platform or app. 

 We are committed to providing a safe learning and teaching environment for all children and staff, and have implemented important controls to prevent any harmful risks. We aim to ensure appropriate and safe use of the internet and other digital technology devices by all the children, staff and adults in our school.
