It is increasingly important that children have the skills and knowledge needed to keep themselves safe on-line. Teaching the skills and knowledge required are now considered an essential part of safeguarding. At The Pines School, we teach 'e-safety' through both the Computing and PSHE curricula as well as working with the Local Authority and external agencies such as the NSPCC and the local PCSO's. Our student Digital Leaders help to promote the importance of staying safe online and we take 'National Safer Internet Day' in February as another opportunity to raise the profile across the school.
All of our children and staff sign Acceptable User Policy Agreements as part on these ongoing discussions, to commit to using technology safely.
