Bishopton School takes the subject of esafety very seriously. All children 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 activities designed to keep them safe when using a range of internet connected devices.
This year, the school has elected pupil e-safety 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 e-safety committee.
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.
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.
