At Castle Hill infant school online safety forms an important part of our Computing and PDL curriculum. We strive to ensure our children understand the importance of using technology safely and respectfully. We aim for them to understand how to keep personal information private and be able to identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns. We want our children to develop online resilience to enable them to become safe and responsible internet users, no matter where they are, or what device they use.
We currently have an e-safety oversight group to ensure that every sector of our community is represented and that e-safety is kept at the forefront of our children's learning. If you would like to join this group please come in to school and speak to any member of staff.
Keeping our children safe is a joint responsibility of all sectors of our community, including children, parents, staff and governors. If you have any concerns regarding apps or programmes etc., please do not hesitate to raise your concerns with us.
Recently the school held an internet safety day, with Mr Paul Hay. He spoke to the children, parents and staff about e-safety. If you have any questions, he is happy to answer these via the email address:
