E-Safety for Parents
E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Glenfield Infant School. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our E-safety Policy. E-Safety is taught as a unit of ICT and E-safety rules are given at the start of every ICT lesson. We also celebrate E-safety day once a year. Each year group has 3 Digital leaders, who help lead ICT and remind the class about E-safety rules.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
Please download E-safety posters and an E-safety story which has been read at school on E-safety day to support staying safe online at home:
