Bishopton School takes the subject of esafety very seriously. All children in all year groups take part in an esafety lesson half termly and online safety is planned into computing lessons where applicable. In addition, the school takes part in the annual Internet Safety Day, where pupils complete a number of activities designed to keep them safe when using a range of internet connected devices.
This year, the school has elected 8 pupil esafety representatives who are responsible for ensuring that devices are used appropriately in school. They are also able to give advice concerning the correct use of iPads and PCs as well as reporting concerns to members of staff on the esafety committee. Each class has at least one esafety representative.
The staff and governors attend regular training sessions which help to be updated on the latest information and resources available.
Our e-safety, mobile phone and internet policies can be found in the 'Policy' section of the website.
The esafety class representatives for 2016-2017 are:
Year 1: Jacob
Year 2: Emma
Year 3: Oliver
Year 4: Heidi
Year 5: Jack
Year 6: Ellie, Joel and Spencer
On the Internet Safety Day 2016, the year 5 pupils made their own esafety song concerning ways that you can stay safe online. Click on the video below to listen to this!
A survey was also carried out for all parents, staff and children to gather information on the standards of e-safety at school and home. This information helps us to guide our next e-safety lessons and to give parents an opportunity to request help or information from us.
During our E-safety day that took place in February, a survey was completed by parents, staff and children. We asked you if you would like any further help or advice on the areas raised. An ‘E-safety Advice booklet’ has been put together in order to answer these queries. If you would like a copy to take home they can be found in our main reception entrance.
