"Learning on computers in ICT in an interactive way makes learning more fun and interesting."

E-Safety @ Allenby

The internet can be great fun. You can chat to your friends, play games and learn about new things. But sometimes things happen which can make you upset. People may say mean things which make you feel sad, or you may see something that you don’t like. At Allenby Primary School, the safety of our pupils is extremely important.  This includes ensuring that we educate them on how to be safe internet users and also supporting parents with this important issue at home. 

All pupils and staff adhere to our Internet Safety and Acceptable Use Policies that all famlies sign up to. We have filters in place to protect and monitor computer and internet use. Occasionally children will see things that are unsuitable on the internet and they have been taught what to do in such an event. All pupils know to report anything to a member of staff, so it can be looked into.

At Allenby, we recognise that while parents/carers have the responsibility to monitor their children's use of the internet and related communication technologies safely in the home, issues that arise at home may impact on relationships in school.  Where this occurs, we aim to work in partnership with parents/carers to ensure children develop their understanding of the importance of e-safety.
