Wray Common Primary School has an online safety policy which explains how we work to keep pupils safe in school, and how we respond to online safety incidents.
Children increasingly use electronic equipment on a daily basis to access the internet, share and view content and images via social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Some adults and other children use these technologies to harm children. The harm might range from sending hurtful or abusive texts or emails, to grooming and enticing children to engage in extremist or sexual behaviour such as webcam photography or face-to-face meetings.
Pupils may also be distressed or harmed by accessing inappropriate material such as pornographic websites, or those websites which promote extremist behaviour, criminal activity, suicidal ideations and/or eating disorders.
Pupils are taught about online safety throughout the curriculum and all staff receive online safety training which is regularly updated. Wray Common Primary School’s online safety co-ordinators are Mr B. Burgess (Computing Lead) and Miss P. Kober (Designated Safeguarding Lead). If you have an online safety concern, please contact Miss Kober by email: email@example.com
We want to support our families to ensure children are able to access online content safely. You can find further information and support here, and in our Useful Links for Parents and Families menu on the right-hand side of the page. Parents and Carers should also look out for updates shared regularly in the School Newsletter about current online concerns, or new websites, games and apps.
