At Alma Park, we are truly passionate about ICT and the many possibilities it opens to our pupils. We pride ourselves on knowing how to stay safe when using computers and other digital devices, having earned two certificates that showcase our dedication to eSafety. We continue working towards accreditation in 360 Online Safety, further solidifying our commitment to safeguarding pupils online.
In school, we use internet filtering systems to protect children from harmful or dangerous content, creating a safer online environment. To support their learning, pupils may use search sites, such as Google or Youtube, but only under adult supervision. These measures are complemented by E-Safety lessons, so that children understand how to safely navigate the online world and know what to do if they have a concern.
Ensuring the online safety of pupils is very much a collaborative effort between the school and families at home. Therefore, we want to help parents and carers learn about the online risks your child may face and the steps you can take to keep them safe. Please follow the links below to find information and advice on eSafety.
Mr Bullivant (Year 2) is our Digital Safety Officer. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to him at school.
