E-Safety at Anson
We believe that the Internet is an essential part of 21st century life and has a valuable role to play in the education of our pupils. Our school has a duty to provide our pupils with quality Internet access as part of their learning experience.
The Internet is a key element of our ICT teaching and learning. In delivering the curriculum, teachers need to plan for and make use of communications technology, for example, web-based resources and e-mail. Access to life-long learning and employment both increasingly require computer and communications use and pupils need to develop ICT life skills.
Home and social internet use is expanding and it is becoming an important part of learning and communication during leisure time. This brings pupils into contact with a wider range of information, the scope and nature of which may, or may not be appropriate for the pupil. There are also wider dangers that e-mail and chat, telephone conversations and text messages, could all be used as a means of anonymous communication with pupils by adults with inappropriate intentions. As a primary school, even our youngest pupils may use the internet and ICT on a daily basis and we believe that their e-safety education should start as soon as technologies are introduced.
We believe that the internet is a valuable teaching resource that can enhance learning and raise educational standards by offering pupils and teachers opportunities to search for, and access multimedia information from a range of sources all over the world. We understand that as with any school resource ICT needs to be managed carefully to ensure its educational effectiveness and safe usage. Below are some of the organisations that support this work.

It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to CEOP by clicking the icon below.
