E Safety

 Our E-Safety and ICT co-ordinator is Mr J. Shea

In school, we believe that technology can be greatly beneficial to a child's academic progress and add an exciting dimension to their learning experiences. We place great importance on ensuring that pupils' use of these technologies occur in a controlled and safe environment. All children  receive specific E-safety lessons as part of the computing curriculum as well as constant references to staying safe when using technology throughout their time in school. All technologies used in school are monitored using Impero software. 

For more information about E Safety in school, please view the E-safety policy in the School Policies section of the Parents Zone. 

E Safety information

  •  Ensure that you look on your internet provider's website to activate parental controls to filter out inappropriate material.
  • If your children play games online, ensure that their contact settings are private so they will not be able to play or receive communications from people they don't know.
  • Always check the age rating of games your children play and observe them playing the game to check for inappropriate or adult themes.
  • Ensure children know the SMART rules of using the internet and are not giving away too much personal information.
  • Adhere to the age limits given on social media platforms (13+ on Facebook, Snapchat & Instagram).
  • Monitor their use of the internet and check internet browsing history. 
  • Ensure children use secure passwords for websites that require a login.
  • Take care with websites or platforms that are linked to your bank account/ credit card. It can be very easy to run up huge bills!
  • If you have any questions regarding your child's online safety, contact Ms Sharratt or Mr Shea for more information.
