E-Safety, Radicalisation and Prevent

E-Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such as mobile phones as well as collaboration tools and electronic publishing. It highlights the need to educate pupils about the benefits and risks of using technology and provides safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to make safe and responsible decisions in order to control their online experience.

At The Avenue Primary, we understand the importance of effective e-safety practice for both staff and pupils and this policy sets out how we ensure this is achieved.

The Internet has become part of our everyday lives and is now easier to access then ever before, but using the Internet can also have risks.

Children and young people are more at risk of exposure to inappropriate or criminal behaviour if they are unaware of the dangers.

These dangers can include:

  • viewing unsuitable content e.g. hate material, adult content, sites that endorse unhealthy behaviour
  • giving out personal information
  • arranging to meet an online ‘friend’
  • becoming involved in, or the victim of, bullying, identity theft, or making and sending indecent or illegal images
  • spending too much time online which can effect concentration, education, sleep and health
  • copying information from the Internet or buying work from other people to use as their own
  • social media such as Twitter and Facebook
  • radicalisation

Parent concerns related to Radicalisation or the Prevent Agenda can be reported to school or directly to  Andy Shippey 01642 728690 or [email protected]
