At Newcroft, we teach E Safety in all year groups through our 'i-compute' ICT curriculum. You can see when these sessions are taught on your child's year group page under ‘curriculum maps.’ Please also see how our teaching is informed by our ethos and E safety policy.
Our school's computing leader, Mrs Pickering and Mrs Aukland, Head teacher, are responsible for the leadership of E safety at Newcroft, in partnership with the computing and safeguarding governor partners.
Keeping children safe is our fundamental priority at Newcroft. Our staff follow the DFE’s ‘Teaching Online Safety in Schools' guidance. Our teaching of online safety links to our anti- bullying policy.
As your child moves through the year groups at Newcroft, they will experience a more detailed and age relevant curriculum linked to online safety. Our curriculum covers social media and how to stay safe.
We are proud to hold the Leicestershire E Safety award. The award allows schools to demonstrate outstanding practise in E Safety, which is externally validated by the Local Authority. Schools have a statutory duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of their pupils, including their use of digital and mobile technology, including the internet. Parents and carers rightly expect schools to equip their children with the skills to manage the very real risks associated with living in a digital age.
We work in partnership with our parents and governors in all aspects of E Safety. We ask all staff, governors, pupils and parents to sign G Suite for Education and IT accpetable use policies. These form part of our E Safety policy.
Navigating the modern world of social media can be challenging for parents.
