At St Paul's C of E Primary School, we are educated for life with the love of God and Christian values at the heart of our school.

 

Reporting to CEOP

We help children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately online towards a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes them feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to us using the 'Click CEOP' button above.

Thinkuknow parents and carers campaign

Research tells us that having a supportive parent or carer can make all the difference in helping a young person learn to stay safe. We hope this campaign will raise awareness of the breadth of advice and support Thinkuknow offers, and its accessibility to anyone whether they would like more information about keeping their child safe, or is worried about a young person in their care.

Thank you, as always, for all of your support for Thinkuknow.

 “The world changes. Children don’t” a video made by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre)

This short film that tells the age-old story of Romeo and Juliet… with a modern twist. It shows how the lives of these young lovers might play out online today, including the Lark ‘tweeting’ and Romeo ‘friending’ Juliet.

Link to video: 'The world changes. Children don't''

Behind this contemporary remake is the message that, although technology and social media can seem overwhelming and forever evolving, children and young people don’t change. We try to remind parents that (just as when they were young), their children are still exploring and creating their identities, keeping up with their friends and dealing with adolescent pressures. Although much of this now happens online, we remind them that the kind of parental support and advice which keeps their children safe 'in real life' will keep them safer online too. And our Thinkuknow resources can be a useful place to start in thinking about how they might frame these discussions.

Online Safety

The use of the internet is rapidly increasing and becoming an important part of learning and communication during work and leisure time.

The purpose of internet access at St. Paul’s is to help raise educational standards by extending learning opportunities for the pupils, supporting the professional work of staff and enhancing the school’s management information and business administration systems. However, it should be acknowledged that the Internet is managed by a worldwide collaboration of independent agencies and serves mainly an adult audience and without appropriate measures, access to unsuitable materials would be possible and security compromised.

The school carries out the following procedures to ensure internet usage is safe:

  • The school uses Webscreen 2.0 in order to ensure that staff and pupils are safe while accessing the internet.
  • The school holds an Online Safety Policy that all users need to comply to.
  • Parents / Guardians are provided with a copy of the Online Safety Policy and are expected to sign an Internet Permission Form (KS1, KS2) at their childrens’ admittance to the school.
  • Pupils sign an agreement to comply with the schools Online Safety rules on an annual basis.
  • Pupils are expected to follow instructions and procedures in order to ensure their own safety and avoid damaging the equipment.
  • All staff sign an agreement to comply with the school’s acceptable use policy.
  • Electronic equipment is checked by a suitably qualified electrician at least every two years.
