Policy summary

Creating a safe ICT learning environment includes three main elements at this school:


  • An effective range of technological tools.
  • Policies and procedures, with clear roles and responsibilities.                       
  •  A comprehensive Online-Safety education programme for pupils, staff and parents.


Online-Safety is recognised as an essential aspect of strategic leadership in this school and the headteacher, with the support of governors, aims to embed safe practices into the culture of the school.  The headteacher ensures that the Policy is implemented and compliance with the Policy monitored.  The responsibility for Online-Safety has been designated to a member of the senior management team.

All teachers are responsible for promoting and supporting safe behaviours in their classrooms and following school Online-Safety procedures.  Central to this is fostering a ‘No Blame’ culture so pupils feel able to report any bullying, abuse or inappropriate materials.

All staff, pupils and parents sign an Acceptable Use Agreement (AUA)

TUK is great for the latest information on the sites you like to visit, mobiles and new technology. Find out what’s good, what’s not and what you can do about it. If you look after young people there’s an area for you too – with resources you can use in the classroom or at home. Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.

The children have access to a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in DB-Primary which provides them a safe space to learn, interact and collaborate with their peers.  This is secure and monitored by staff. 

For more information and ideas on how to make the most out of the VLE and to promote Online-Safety please read the guide below.
