E-Safety

E-Safety and Social Media Policy - please click the link

Keeping safe online is really important for us at Springhill Academy.

Our E-safety policy reflects the importance on using information systems and electronic communication safely. We aim to keep our children safe online and also when using mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. We feel it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.

All of our pupils and staff have signed behaviour agreements and training is provided annually for both staff and pupils.

Mrs Cadman is our e-safety co-ordinator and is happy to help with any problems you may have online.

A copy of our E-Safety policy has been agreed by governors and can be found at the link below. It links closely to our behaviour policy, child protection policy and anti bullying policy and is built into our curriculum.

All Key Stage 2 children are following a  well planned national programme regarding online safety delivered by the NSPCC 'share aware' campaign,
