E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Ovingham. As children's skills and abilities to access the wider world increases, so does our responsibility to keep them safe online. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard the children from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed. E-Safety is taught to all children explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents and carers to ensure that the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that you have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage the children to speak to you or a grown up that they trust if they come across something worrying online.
ThinkUKnow by National Crime Agency - CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) provides resources for parents and carers and children of all ages to help keep children safe online. The ThinkUKnow website also contains an icon button to link you to the CEOP site for reporting inappropriate use of the internet. You just access the website and click on this link to make a report.
