E Safety in our school

 

Our school works proactively with the children to help them understand and learn how to stay safe online.  We have an acceptable use policy of how ICT is used at school which was devised by the children through the School Council and which every child signs to show that they will adhere to this code of conduct in school.  We are in the process of updating this to take account of new digital technologies in school.

We are currently revisiting our acceptable use policy in school and children have been asked to sign up to show that they accept and agree to abide by the rules.  Our current policy, which was written by the children at school, is as follows:

Computing Acceptable Use PolicyThis was written by the School Council in consultation with the Children at Ludlow Junior School.

Using social media

Take a look at this information provided by the NSPCC about online safety.  The netaware guide gives details of a wide range of social networks used by children in a simple guide for parents to the most popular social networks, apps and games.

Wireless network

We now have a wireless network in school which is filtered to prevent access to unsuitable websites, whilst enabling the children to benefit from the very best educational resources possible. However with new technologies emerging all of the time we recognise that it will not always be possible to eliminate the risk of inappropriate internet use completely through  filtering and restriction. With this in mind we place great importance on educating the children on taking their own e-safety very seriously. We expect the children to actively learn responsible use of the internet through our ongoing work on being safe and happy and ensure that the children have the opportunity to gain an age appropriate understanding of the potential risks as well as the advantages of using modern technology as they progress through the school.

As a result of this, we expect each child to demonstrate safe and responsible use of the internet. You can help support your child at home by being aware of potential risks, and regularly talking to your child about how they use the internet at home. If you require more information you may find these links helpful, or by all means talk to your child’s teacher.

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.
