Esafety Week 2016
Esafety Week 2016
This week was E-Safety Week. All children from Yrs 1-6 took part in an interactive workshop which gave them the key facts and messages about keeping safe on-line and what to do if anything they see makes them ‘uncomfortable’ or afraid.
Yr 6 took part in ‘The World of Thrones’ where they had the chance to add their own ideas to a basic game show type script to make the story their own. They performed their final masterpiece to Yr 4 &5 in the afternoon.
Yrs 1-5 took part in ‘Into the Screen’ where they played games on a giant keyboard on the floor. They learned what is ‘safe’ to talk about on-line and also what information they should never share.
Esafety Safety Week 2015
This week has been E-Safety Week. All childrein in Key Stage 1 and 2 have taken part in workshops and assemblies which have highlighted how to stay safe online and the importance of keeping your personal details private. Year 6 also experienced a workshop which showed how easy it was to become friends with someone that lied about their identity. The internet is a wonderful resource but parents and children need to be aware of the dangers.

What is E-Safety?
Whilst the internet and associated technologies are an excellent tool with resource to enrich learning, there are still dangers related to their use, especially in relation to young children. Some examples of this are:
Bullying via chat (mobile phones) or email
Obsessive internet use
Exposure to inappropriate materials
Inappropriate or illegal behaviour
Physical danger of sexual abuse
As a school it is our duty of care alongside that of parents and other members of the community to protect our children from these dangers and this can be achieved by many different mechanisms working together.
The purpose of this e-safety is to outline what measures our school takes to ensure that children can work in an e-safe environment and that any e-safety issue is detected and dealt with in a timely and appropriate fashion.
Shaw Primary Academy works with staff, pupils and parents/carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
