Online Safety is an important part of our school curriculum and keeping children safe at The Stoke Poges School.
Technology is an ever growing and central part to the children of today. Online Safety is taught to all pupils at The Stoke Poges School and is embedded in our Computing curriculum.
We can only be successful as a community in keeping children safe online if we work together to ensure all E-Safety messages are consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online, whilst also following our Stoke Poges School Values.
We want our pupils to appreciate the knowledge that the Internet holds, the fun they can have but to also understand the dangers that there are. Whilst Online Safety features frequently in our Computing curriculum, we also emphasise its importance in our Online Safety week, which takes place in February each year. Our Computing lessons provide regular reminders of appropriate behaviour and browsing habits and we also display posters across the school.
We would also like to remind you that there is a minimum age for children to access some social media platforms:
Within our Computing curriculum students are reminded of their individual online responsibilities and how to report any issues in school or through the link to the CEOP website:
If you are concerned about anything regarding online safety, cyberbullying and social media please let a member of staff know. This will then be passed to our Computing Team; Mrs Makkar and Mr Follant to follow up.
