Here at Polesden Lacey Infant School we pride ourselves in providing the children with the skills and knowledge they need to enjoy and explore the ever changing online world, whilst keeping themselves safe. Our policy clearly outlines our commitment to the importance of Online Safety in school and how we work to support the children to be confident users of technology, this can be found in the Policy Section of our website.
Our Computing lessons expose the children to a variety of technology that they can use in a purposeful way across the curriculum. By teaching the children about keeping themselves safe online at an early age we are laying the foundations for their future.
The children have worked together to create a set of 'e-Safety Rules' which we refer to throughout our time at school, especially during computing lessons, however many of the rules are also important to remember in real life situations.Polesden Lacey Infant School e-Safety Rules January 2020
