The purpose of Airedale Infants online safety policy is to:
o Safeguard and protect all members of our school community online.
o Identify approaches to educate and raise awareness of online safety throughout the community.
o Enable all staff to work safely and responsibly, to role model positive behaviour online and to manage professional standards and practice when using technology.
o Identify clear procedures to use when responding to online safety concerns.
We identify that the issues classified within online safety are considerable, but can be broadly categorised into three areas of risk:
o Content: being exposed to illegal, inappropriate or harmful material
o Contact: being subjected to harmful online interaction with other users
o Conduct: personal online behaviour that increases the likelihood of, or causes, harm.
We aim to enrich the curriculum educating our children about how to stay safe online and when using technology.
