E-safety statement

A thorough and age appropriate e-safety curriculum is delivered to all pupils at Chesterton to teach children how to stay safe when using computing technology in school or at home.

This learning is delivered through half termly e-safety lessons during Personal Social Cultural and Health (PSCH) lessons. Each half term a new topic is covered which is appropriate to the children's age and Computing topic that they are studying. Further e-safety teaching is provided through Computing lessons which follow the in-depth Rising Stars curriculum, providing a diverse and comprehensive e-safety education to all children.

In addition, each year children are asked to read and sign an Acceptable Use Agreement for using computing equipment in school, which has a strong focus on keeping children safe online. This agreement is displayed in classes as a reminder of how importantly adults and children regard e-safety at Chesterton. Throughout the year assemblies take place on new and important e-safety topics so children and adults can stay up to date with new e-safety risks and concerns. 

Additional information for parents about how to keep children safe online can be found at this link.
