Technology opens up new possibilities that many of us never had when we were growing up. Children use technology in amazing ways to do amazing things. Using the power of the Internet, children can create their own websites, music, videos, photographs and upload and share these online with friends, family or the whole world. Laptops, handheld devices such as portable music players, and games consoles and mobile phones can access the Internet from any location at any time.As adults, we may not use the Internet and other technologies in the same way as our children, but we do need to understand what they are doing, what the risks might be, and how we can help them to keep them safe.

The school is already working to help keep children safe online, and to teach pupils about using technology safely. However we all have a role to play, and parents can help us by:learning about the benefits and risks of using the Internet and other technologies that your children usediscussing e-Safety concerns with your childrenshowing an interest in how they are using technologyencouraging them to behave safely and responsibly when using technologymodelling safe and responsible behaviours in your own use of technology

At Cragside C of E Primary School, safeguarding children is at the heart of everything we do and this includes keeping children safe when using ICT.  All of our children have signed an Acceptable Use Agreement, have reminders about how to keep safe in their Planners and regularly revisit E Safety as part of their Computing Curriculum.

If you have any concerns about your children’s use of technology, don’t be afraid to speak to staff at our school.  Mrs Bilton and Mrs Parker are the E Safety Leaders at school and will be happy to respond to any of your questions or concerns.
