At St. Francis Xavier’s Primary School, we appreciate the positive impact that the online world can have on children's education. We provide children with regular and rich opportunities to learn about the importance of staying safe online, both at home and at school. These include:
Year 5 have been evaluating, designing and creating their own website! As part of this unit, we learned all about staying safe online and leaving a positive digital footprint as it is a collective responsbility to make the internet a safe, fun and educational place!
Our Internet Safety Day is held in February each year but we have regular curriculum updates throughout the year.
Online Safety Agreement
Parents and carers play a crucial role in ensuring that their children understand the need to use the internet and mobile devices in in appropriate way. At St Francis Xavier's R.C Primary School, we have designed an E-Safety agreement which outlines how parents/carers, the school and pupils can work together to stay safe online.
The E-safety agreement is revisited and signed annually by parents/carers, the school and pupils. A copy is kept at home and school to be referred to or revisited during discussions about online safety.
Should you have any questions regarding the E-Safety Agreement, please do not hesitate to talk to your child's class teacher.
