Online Safety

Our eSafety Policy should be read in conjunction with other related school policies and documentation e.g. St Laurence’s Behaviour Policy.


This policy and guidance was based on a template provided by SWGfL (South West Grid for Learning).  Their website (see link below) contains links to other useful eSafety information.

The school’s eSafety Coordinator is Mr Barrow (ICT Subject Leader)


Internet Safety is taught throughout school and is considered to be one of the ways we keep ourselves safe.


Our Golden Rules for Staying Safe with ICT

We always ask permission before using the Internet.

We only use the Internet when a trusted adult is around.

We immediately close/minimise any page we are uncomfortable with (or if possible, switch off the monitor).

We always tell an adult if we see anything we are uncomfortable with.

We only communicate online with people a trusted adult has approved.

All our online communications are polite and friendly.

We never give out our own, or others', personal information or passwords and are very careful with the information that we share online.

We only use programs and content which have been installed by the school.
