E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Churchtown Primary School. It covers all electronic media and we constantly strive to protect and educate our pupils in the digital world we live in. It is embedded into our school curriculum, particularly in Computing and PSHE lessons. Pupils are taught how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We were recently part of an Internal Audit review which involved a sample of schools. Churchtown Primary was graded as VERY GOOD. You can read more about this by clicking here.
We were also 'Highly Commended' for our Safer Internet Week at the Community Education Awards 2016!

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.
It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
