E-Safety for Parents
Page icon
Here at Abbey school we understand the ever changing digital world and recognise the importance of our pupils becoming computer literate. The computing curriculum at Abbey has this at its heart and allows our pupils to become ESMART.

Jobs need to be filled by a generation of young people who feel comfortable with a range of technological devices and understand how these can connect to a world of huge possibilities. However, we also acknowledge that children, through their innocence, may encounter and become involved in dangers whilst online.

Below are a range of guidelines, resources and advice about how to keep your child safe as well as an overview of how we approach ESafety with your child..

E-Smart Curriculum
Our curriculum provides a wealth of opportunities for our pupils to become digitally aware citizens and enhance their digital literacy. At the same time we understand that ESafety needs to be a subject that is taught continuously and works alongside the opportunities offered for pupils to use new and emerging technology.

This is why we identify all areas of the curriculum that ICT is taught. Responsible online behaviour must be encouraged in pupils, and they must be suitably taught to increase their knowledge and awareness about online safety, which includes: sexting, pornography, downloading, gaming, cyberbullying and social networking

Our vision is for our pupils to be ESMART ambassadors both within school and within the family home. Contact the school for further information on ESafety and up and coming ESafety events.
