At d'Auvergne, we offer pupils extensive access to computing.
Through the access provided by our MakerSpace, IT Suite and every pupil in Key Stage 2 having their own laptop we have to regularly support children to stay safe online.
Children in Key Stage 1 have access to a set of iPads / class.
All computer traffic is monitored in school, with our Impero system immediately flagging inappropriate or concerning searches or content.
Online safety is an important aspect of keeping our pupils safe. We take broad measures to safeguard our children from potential dangers and unsuitable material.
Safety in the digital world is key to the Computing curriculum. We teach digital safety to all year groups. We also hold regular whole school online safety events to help our pupils keep safe online.
We train our staff and keep our policies and acceptable use agreements up to date. We also encourage parents to speak to their children about keeping safe and how to behave online. It’s essential to be realistic. Banning the internet will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. This means that education around safe use is essential.
If you have any concerns about Online Safety speak to us. Contact our Wellbeing Lead, Rachel, or our Computing Coordinator Miss Leighton via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01534 625858.
