Northway Primary School works with staff, pupils, parents and carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Pupil Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies. We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies and that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and abide by the school’s e-safety policy.
We ask parents to help keep your child safe online by following the points below:-

Stay safe and do not share any personal information.

No text talk. Read and check your comments.
