We take Internet Safety very seriously at Gomersal Primary School and it forms a key part of our Safeguarding arrangements.
Online Safety for Pupils
Every year we teach all year groups about the importance of remaining safe online and we give them rules and measures for them to follow in order to stay safe when using the internet. These rules are reinforced across school on a daily basis to ensure Internet Safety awareness remains high profile. Please see our Online Safety Policy: School Online Safety Policy 2017-18
Online Safety for Parents
We regularly communicate key Online Safety information to parents, some of which can be found in the documents and links at the bottom of this page.
Parents' involvement with keeping children safe Online is key as most Internet access at home does not involve the filters and other safeguarding measures that we have in school.
For more information regarding Internet Safety can be found at Parent Info
'Keeping Ourselves Safe'
In one of our recent workshops, we learnt about Internet Safety in school from PC Whitehouse. We celebrated how fantastic the internet is but we also focused upon potential dangers and rules that children can follow to stay safe. Ms Cox, our Online Safety Lead within school conducts half-termly Online Safety Pupil interviews and has been impressed with their depth of Knowledge and awareness of Online Safety.
