St Blaise is committed to seeing every child flourish in our care. We love to see the children inspired and we are proud of how creative and innovative they are when using different technologies. The children and staff are constantly using the iPads, the laptops and other communication tools to help our learning and we have a wide range of strategies and resources in place to make sure every child is safe and secure when online.

The children learn about e-safety throughout the year. We focus on Cyberbullying each November to coincide with Anti-Bullying Week. Each February we celebrate Safer Internet Day and Poplar won last year’s competition in Oxfordshire with their e-safety rap.

 

Safer Internet Rap – Poplar Class 2015
If I could make the internet a better place, here is where I’d start.
Everybody needs to work as a team, pull together not pull apart.

If I could make the internet a better place, this is the message I’d
send. Everybody should be friends on the internet, everybody should
be friends.

If I could make the internet a better place, this is what I’d do. I’d
ban rude messages and cyberbullying so nobody is mean to you.

If I could make the internet a better place, here are my ideas. Kind
words only, nobody gets lonely, then there’ll be no tears.

If I could make the internet a better place, I’d make it safe for you.
No more hacking, no more pop ups, that’s what we should do.

If I could make the internet a better place, just games and friends and
facts. No more strangers, no more dangers, I just wanna relax!

 

Each class has an e-safety focus for a half a term in the Summer. This year Oak and Poplar will be using the Lee and Kim resources. Click here to see them.

Parent workshops and training are offered at regular intervals. Please support us in training our children to be responsible digital citizens, discerning web searchers, respectful commentators and thoughtful authors.

If you have any queries about e-safety please do get in touch!

The IT Policy can be found on the policies page as can the IT staff use policy.
