Computing and e-Safety at Bishopton

Computing and E-Safety at Bishopton


CEOP is here to keep children safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. You can make a report directly to the CEOP Safety Centre by clicking on the Click CEOP button if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online. CEOP take all reports seriously and we will do everything we can to keep you safe. As well as making a report to the CEOP Safety Centre, the CEOP Education website has information and advice to help you if something has happened to you online. Are you being bullied? CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying but if you’re being bullied and would like to talk to someone in confidence right now you can speak to Childline on 0800 1111 or talk to them online – no worry is too big or too small.

Computing and using Information and Communication Technology is an essential part of daily life. At Bishopton Primary School we aim, through the use of a range of equipment e.g. laptops, iPads, micro-bits, cameras, lego, interactive whiteboards, VR headsets etc to teach children the necessary skills they need to become confident and capable users of Computing and ICT equipment.

Bishopton School takes the subject of E-Safety very seriously. All children take part in an  E-Safety 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.


We hope our children leave our school with skills of digital literacy at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active, safe participants in a digital world.


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.

Our e-safety monitors have designed these posters for safe computer use at Bishopton.

Useful Information - Parental Controls and Help Guides for Devices


Here are the National Online Safety’s top tips for checking and monitoring age ratings:

1) Do your research

If you’ve noticed a new game that your child has downloaded then use quality resources to make sure that your knowledge is up to date. Online websites, such as National Online Safety, can provide you with the information you need.

2) Review parental controls

Review your parental controls on the stores where you buy games from. Most sites allow parents to set passwords to block games with certain age restrictions from being downloaded.

3) Encourage open dialogue

Encourage open dialogue with your child. You don’t want to be in position where they won’t talk to you if something has made them feel uncomfortable in a game because they are worried they will get in trouble for playing the game in the first place.

4) Discuss ratings

Talk to your child about why the game has been awarded a certain label. Debate the positives and negatives of playing a game and decide on some ground rules together - please visit for more information on suitable video games and their age ratings.


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.
