At Nanstallon School we are committed to introducing your child to modern technologies. We use computers and tablets in every class to support children's learning and to help them communicate . We believe that in this technological age we have a responsibility to keep children not only up to date with technologies but to teach them how to use these resources safely.
Through our membership of the ‘South West Grid for Learning’, we have a robust filtering system and an e-safety log to record any e-safety incidents in school. We also ensure that we educate children about cyber-bullying, how to protect themselves from bullying and how to make sure that they show respect for others.
As part of this e-education we have a commitment to keeping your children safe ‘on-line’. All children and parents have signed an e-safety agreement and we have introduced progressive e-safety training for all the children across the school. In the Autumn term, Elm, Willow and Oak class work through a series of 5 lessons which are endorsed by SWGFL and Common Sense Media. Cherry Tree Class, our reception class, are introduced to e-safety through the story of Smartie the Penguin.
As a whole school, we enjoy celebrating Safer Internet day every February and use this as an opportunity to refresh our knowledge, share information with the wider community and keep up to date with new practices.
In the Summer term, through our class assemblies, we further consolidate our knowledge. Cherry Tree Class focus on the book ‘Digi Duck’, Elm Tree learn about e-safety through ‘Hector’s World’, Willow Tree uses ‘The Smart Crew’ and Oak Class embed their learning through on-line resources such as the CBBC website.
There are many websites for parents that have a wealth of up to date information and will be able to answer many of your questions. Of course, if you would like to speak to a human being about any e-safety concerns then do come in and ask us. Mr Dingle, Mrs Lawrey and Mrs Teague are members of the e-safety committee and can help to deal with any queries.
Further down the page we have added the CEOP report button which can be used to report any serious concerns about safety. You can also click this link.
