William de Yaxley Church of England Academy works with governors, staff, pupils, parents and carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Pupil Behaviour, Data Protection and Anti-Bullying policies.
We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies through our teaching and assemblies, so that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and abide by the school's Internet Safety policy.
We provide opportunities for parents/carers to receive e-safety education and information, to enable them to support their children in developing good e-safety behaviour.
