Online or E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Bassetts Farm Primary School. We monitor the use of technology and the internet both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. We believe that through education, pupils can have the skills needed to navigate the online world safely and confidently. As such, E-Safety is an integrated part of our Computing and PSHE curriculum across the school to all pupils in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 and complemented with a termly E-Safety assembly. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

Safer Internet Day
Each year schools, colleges and organisations take a day to look at E-Safety. This year the theme was 'Together for a better internet'. Primary schools across the UK looked at the use of online 'Avatars' and how we portray ourselves online. You can find more information and some resources here.
