Here at Stanton Bridge Primary School we believe Online Safety is paramount. We work closely with Coventry City Council and the Warwickshire ICT Development Service and are currently working towards the 360 Degree Safe accreditation.
We believe that it is the right of every child to feel safe and secure when using technology. We have embedded it into each year group and especially in the Computing and PSHCEE lessons, we teach how to use technology correctly and responsibly. We also focus on how to deal with problems or when they feel unsafe. We feel that children need to use technology correctly at home too and have some simple procedures which we feel could be used at home.
