Please follow this link to our latest e-safety newsletter for the Junior school.

At Connect Schools Academy Trust we take children's e-safety very importantly. Therefore there are two important websites that parents should be aware of and use to help secure your family browsing.

'Internet Matters' E-Safety App

Below is a link to the 'Internet Matters' website where parents can download an interactive app which is great to play with children 8-10 years old.  The app is based on a two player game with questions and scenarios to discuss with children. It gives parents the opportunity to pause for discussion about a variety of E-Safety areas.

Also please be aware that:
 
1. Parents and children must not attempt to contact staff via social media
2. Connect Schools Academy Trust has a secure platform for all emails and sharing of resources within the CSAT community, using the VLE log-in.
 
The documents below outline Crofton's e-Safety policy and practice. 
 
Please feel free to read the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), which outlines the detail of our e-Safety provision. The Parent AUP is a shorter document outlining your role and commitment, and we would recommend that you read this carefully.
 
There are two documents relating specifically to students. The THINK THEN CLICK poster has been displayed prominently in all areas where children access ICT, and should you decide to place one near your home PC, this will support the school's practice very effectively.
 
The "12 Rules for Responsible Use" is the student AUP, and forms the basis of our e-Safety teaching. Again, you will be strongly re-inforcing the e-Safety message if you adopt these rules at home.
 
The two PDF files are the Byron Review, which is currently the Government's core research document on e-Safety, and the condensed children's version. Our e-safety policy and training is based heavily on the findings of these documents.
