E-Safety plays an important part of how we keep children safe at Carlton. We have extensive measures in place to help safeguard our pupils from potential dangers associated with being online and the use of technology. As part of our school policy any E-Safety incidents are logged using CPOMS, these are then actioned and dealt with accordingly. E-Safety is taught to all pupils in school, explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Online safety is woven into all areas of the computing curriculum as well as being supported through specific e-safety days.
In order to educate our children about online safety successfully as a school we work with parents to ensure a consistent message is given. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can stay safe and behave appropriately online
Please find below information which may help to support your discussions with your children.
