E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Leighton Middle School. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed.
All members of the school community are committed to behave in a careful, polite and courteous manner as outlined in both the Staff Acceptable Use Policy as well as the Acceptable Use policy for our pupils.
To encourage awareness and self-protection, at Leighton Middle, e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Teaching occurs in their Computer Studies lesson but also their PSR/PSHCE (Citizenship) lessons. As a school, we also approach this subject during form time and assemblies. We also participate in the annual “Safer Internet Day” where activities are delivered to the whole school community and take part in an e-Safety regional competition run by BCS and the University of Cranfield.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work within our school community but also with our parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent.
