The eSafety Committee

 

Welcome to our eSafety Comittee 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 Comitee. 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.

 

The eSafety Comittee are responsible for:

 

  • the production / review / monitoring of the school Online Safety Policy / documents.
  • mapping and reviewing the online safety / digital literacy curricular provision – ensuring our eSafety curriculum and digital literacy opportunities are exciting, invierating and offer breath for all of our children
  • monitoring network / internet / incident logs
  • consulting stakeholders – questioning  parents / carers and the pupils about the online safety provision
  • Self-reviewing our strengths and weakness' in our eSafety education, policies, procedures 

 

We will be meeting over the next couple of weeks so we will update you with our first intiatives soon!

  • A full day learning about and participating in games to inform the children about online safety on eSafety day
