Whilst the internet and associated technologies are an excellent tool with resource to enrich learning, there are still dangers related to their use, especially in relation to young children. Some examples of this are:
As a school it is our duty of care alongside that of parents and other members of the community to protect our children from these dangers and this can be achieved by many different mechanisms working together.
The purpose of this e-safety is to outline what measures our school takes to ensure that children can work in an e-safe environment and that any e-safety issue is detected and dealt with in a timely and appropriate fashion.
Abbots Hall Primary Academy works with staff, pupils and parents/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.

If a child you know has experienced sexual or offensive chat that has made them feel uncomfortable or someone is trying to meet up with them, you can report this directly to CEOP.
This may have happened in a chat room, message board, instant messenger or on a social networking site. It could be on a mobile phone, games console or computer. It could be messages, images or conversations over webcam.
The important thing is that if you know that an adult is making sexual advances to children on the internet you should report it to CEOPs immediately.
