At Ermine Primary Academy, we take E–Safety very seriously.
Whilst technology is a wonderful thing, children need to be taught the skills to use it appropriately and protect themselves online. E-Safety skills are taught throughout the year as part of our computing lessons as well as through a week long E-Safety Campaign to refresh and update their knowledge. All of our laptops and classrooms carry e-safety messages so our pupils are continually aware of how to safely enjoy the internet.
In addition, we provide an annual E-Safety event for parents. Supporting leaflets such as ‘How to set up Google Safe Search’ are always available from our school reception area.
Ermine Primary Academy welcomes photography at many of our open parent events. Times for photography will be communicated and provided for by attending staff because of the school’s safeguarding duty (some pupil images cannot be shared). However, wherever possible we will always aim to take and post pictures on our Ermine Primary Academy social media sites (see homepage) that are cleared. No pupils will be named when images are publicly posted.
You can report an e-Safety issue using the CEOP link below. This link will take you to the relevant phone number and email address you need in order to report a problem.
Alternatively, we are always happy to help at school with an e-Safety issue. Should you or child wish to report a problem, please speak to your child’s class teacher, who will then notify an e-Safety leader.
The issue will then be dealt with and monitored by our e-Safety team and the Head teacher.
