The opportunities presented by electronic technology: internet, email, apps, games, social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, text messaging etc can be a powerful tool for good communication and social links. However they can also have the potential for harm, and especially so where children are concerned.
At Callow End Primary School, keeping our pupils from harm, at the same time as providing them with a safe 'electronic' learning environment, is a priority. We will add any advice to parents about e-safety in the section below as we receive it.
Our E-Safety policy forms the basis on which our decisions are made. It is under regular review with a set date for a detailed consideration of the complete policy. All pupils, parents and school staff are expected to sign an appropriate pro-forma indicating they have read and agreed with the policy. You can find it on our Policies page.
