Using Technology in School
Children have access to filtered internet to support their learning in school. Teachers or support staff are present when children are asked to access the internet and monitor the internet use.
Internet sites accessed are monitored by SoftEgg technicians and cause for concern is communicated to the Trust.
• In KS1, pupils access only sites approved by an adult and an adult always monitors Internet use.
• In KS2, pupils access a wider range of sites and an adult is always present.
• Pupils must not access personal chat rooms.
• If pupils access inappropriate sites by accident, they must tell an adult
• Pupils are taught to be aware that at some point, they are likely to access inappropriate sites by accident, and they must tell an adult.
• If pupils deliberately access inappropriate sites, sanctions will apply
• Pupils are aware that their Internet usage is monitored by staff. Pupils must not enter personal data onto the Internet.
Further information about what children are being asked to do online/who interacting with should be communicated through Google classroom, as and when it occurs.
