The eSafety Committee

 

Welcome to our eSafety Committee Page!

 

"New technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people in today’s society, both within schools and in their lives outside school. The internet and other digital and information technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. However, with new opportunities come risks to be aware of..."

At Witton Church Walk C of E Primary School, we take Internet Safety very seriously and strive to ensure that our children are provided with opportunities to engage with new technologies in a safe and secure environment where their safety is paramount. We encourage them to take ownership of their own learning and teach them how they can help to keep themselves safe online by reducing the potential risks that come with internet technology. 

 

 

Our school has a devoted eSafety Committee. This group includes:

A group of children in Key Stage Two

An Online Safety Govenor 

A Pupil Computing Lead

Miss Simcock (Computing and eSafety Lead)

 

We are dedicated to educating the children in our school about both the benefits  that the internet can provide and also the associated risks to be aware of so that all children in our school are 'E-Smart' when it comes to Internet Safety.
