E-SAFETY POLICY SUMMARY
This policy is part of the School’s Statutory Safeguarding Policy. Any issues and concerns with online safety must follow the school’s safeguarding and child protection processes.
Marvels Lane e-safety policy is based on advice from the LGfL (London Grid for Learning www.lgfl.net)
The purpose of this policy is to:
- Set out the key principles expected of all members of the school community at Marvels Lane Primary School with respect to the use of IT-based technologies.
- Safeguard and protect the children and staff.
- Assist school staff working with children to work safely and responsibly with the Internet and other IT and communication technologies and to monitor their own standards and practice.
- Set clear expectations of behaviour and/or codes of practice relevant to responsible use of the Internet for educational, personal or recreational use for the whole school community.
- Have clear structures to deal with online abuse such as online bullying.
- Ensure that all members of the school community are aware that unlawful or unsafe behaviour is unacceptable and that, where appropriate, disciplinary or legal action will be taken.
- Minimise the risk of misplaced or malicious allegations made against adults who work with students.
- The policy details the main areas of risk for the school community; the roles and responsibilities for all members of the school community; how incidents will be handled; how e-safety is incorporated into the computing curriculum; training that will be available for staff and parents; how the school network is to be managed; how data will be kept secure and how mobile and digital content is to be managed. It also includes copies of the acceptable use agreements.
