E-Safety Statement

 
Enfield County is aware that the Internet and related technologies are powerful tools, which open up new prospects for communication and collaboration. Education is embracing these new technologies as they bring with them fresh opportunities for both teachers and learners.
 
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is seen as an essential tool to support teaching and learning, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. At Enfield County we have incorporated these technologies in order to equip our pupils with the skills they will need for life-long learning and employment.
The world of ICT is a fast moving environment and covers a wide range of resources including; mobile learning, web-based learning and Managed Learning Environment (MLE) to name a few. Some of the technologies available to young people in/outside of school are:
 
  • Computers, laptops and tablets
  • Mobile phones
  • Blogs & Wikis based on Web 2.0 technologies
  • Online Forums
  • Social Networking e.g. Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook
  • Chatrooms
  • Music and Video Broadcasting
  • Podcasting
  • Email & Instant Messaging
  • Managed Learning Environment – Firefly
  • Microblogging sites e.g. Twitter
 
 
While all these technologies are exciting and beneficial to the learner some of the web-based resources are hard to monitor and are not consistently policed. All users including adults need to be aware of the risks associated with the use of Internet technologies.
 
At Enfield County we take the matter of e-safety very seriously and we teach all our stakeholders in line with Enfield’s Local Authority Safeguarding Children E-safety Policy how to use web-based technologies safely and legally. We teach our pupils the appropriate behaviours and thinking skills required for safe Internet use that will keep them safe in and beyond the classroom.
 
Our school website has a separate page for e-safety and a range of materials are available for viewing/downloading for parents/carers and pupils. These documents link directly to CEOPS and Childnet advice leaflets so users can receive the most up to date material in relation to any e-safety issues.
