 At Our Lady of Grace Catholic Infant School we understand that it is essential to encourage and develop the use of new technologies in our teaching and learning practice.  

The internet has changed the way we learn, interact and communicate so this technology is to be embraced. However, we must also be aware of the potential dangers including the fact that the internet can be used for malicious and criminal purposes.

At school, we have extensive security measures in place, which are monitored both internally and externally.  Our secure ICT network prevents children accessing inappropriate information and blocks websites that are not necessary for their learning.  Any e-safety incidents are recorded and managed as part of our Online Safety Policy.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-safety message is consistent.  It is important that parents speak to their chldren about how they can keep safe and behave appropiately online.  It's essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem.  Education around safe use is paramount.

We have provided links below to some information and posters about the ways you can ensure your child is practising online safety. We also hope this will be a starting point for you to talk to your children about the need to keep safe online and that they will feel they can tell you about anything that worries them. Please also refer to our school newsletters which provide useful online safety tips.
