At St. Gildas' School we are committed to promoting e-safety. We believe that in an ever increasingly technological world, children should feel safe and secure when using ICT.
Our e-safety programme teaches children the safe and appropriate behaviours to adopt when using the Internet, email and other technologies, the risks associated with using the internet, email and other technologies and how to reduce the risks, and what to do when encountering risks. We teach children that if they encounter harmful or inappropriate content, or material that worries or concerns them, they must report it to an adult immediately. We also teach children the expectation for good manners in communications, the need to be critical of what they see online, the safe handling of personal data and security, and the risks of spending too much time using technology.
Children are asked to agree to our ICT Code of Conduct. This details 13 rules for responsible use of ICT. A copy of this agreement is listed below. Also attached is a copy of our E-Safety Agreement. The Use of Digital Images Policy details how and why we would use your child's photographic image or video image. More information on e-safety can be found on the website links below.
