E-SAFETY

At Clavering Primary School we are passionately committed to educating our children about how to be safe at all times and in all situations. This includes our E-Safety education.

In line with the current OFSTED Framework, we consider E-Safety as being:

  • our ability to protect and educate our children and staff members in their use of technology; and
  • having the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incident where appropriate.

The breadth of issues classified within E-Safety is considerable, but can be categorised into three areas of risk:

  • content: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material;
  • contact: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users; and
  • conduct: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm.

Examples of these areas are given at the bottom of this page.

In addition to in-house e-safey training provided for all staff, the majority of our staff members have completed the NSPCC and CEOP’s KCSO (Keeping Children Safe Online) training; plus, two members of our leadership team (Mrs Corr and Miss Leighton) have completed the Child Exploitation Online Protection Centre (CEOP) Ambassador training.

Following reviews of our E-Safety policies and curriculum, we have constructed the ‘E-Safety’ section of our website to provide children, parents and carers with important information.

Key Clavering E-Safety documents include:
