E-Safety Policy


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.
