The opportunities presented by modern electronic technology: internet, email, social sites such as Facebook and Bebo, Twitter, text messaging etc, are truly awesome in their potential for good. They are equally awesome in their potential for harm, and especially so where children are concerned. At Harvington CE First & Nursery School, keeping our children from harm at the same time as providing them with a safe 'electronic' learning environment is a priority.
Our Online Safety policy forms the basis on which our decisions are made. It is under regular review with a set date for a detailed consideration of the complete policy. All children, parents and school staff are expected to sign an appropriate pro-forma indicating they have read and agreed with the policy.
