E-Safety

At Templemoor Infant and Nursery School, we believe that internet and e-safety is a crucial part of your child's education. Not only is e-safety part of our computing curriculum, but important messages and information are given to children through e-safty focused assemblies and taking part in national events such as 'E-Safety Week'.
 
What we do at Templemoor to keep your child safe online:
 
  • We use filtering software on the school internet.
  • We talk to your child about E Safety and include it in the  curriculum and in assemblies.
  • We have guidance for children, staff and parents about E-Safety.
  • We have an e-safety policy, which includes cyber-bullying.
  • We have 'Acceptable User Agreements' which staff and children sign.
We have a comprehensive e-safety policy and this can be downloaded below, along with our Social Media Policy and Twitter Policy. 
There is a vast amount of information out there for parents / carers and children to access to help highlight the key aspects of keeping safe when online. Below are a number of documents / resources that we feel are useful and will help to highlight the importance of e-safety.
