Keeping Our Community Safe 

To meet our aim of keeping everyone safe Bankfields Primary School will: 

  • Ensure that pupils are aware, through e-safety education, of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of computers/devices.
  • Ensure that all e-safety concerns are dealt with sensitively and effectively and that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents, in line with our e-safety reporting procedures.
  • Support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
  • Report back to parents / carers regarding e-safety concerns. Parents/carers in turn work with the school to uphold the e-safety policy.
  • Seek to learn from e-safety good practice elsewhere and utilise the support of relevant organisations.
  • Provide opportunities for parents/carers to receive e-safety education and information to enable them to support their children in developing good e-safety behaviour.
