At The Grove, we take E-Safety very seriously. It is never too early for children to learn about how to keep themselves safe and in the technological world we live in nowadays, this is even more of a priority in terms of online safety.
Our school uses images of pupils on our website and sometimes, in press releases. You as a parent/carer are given the option to refuse this. At the beginning of every academic year a form requesting this information will be sent out to you but you can change your preference at any time by contacting the office.
E-Safety in and around our school
We teach children about e-safety both in discrete lessons and themed 'Internet Safety' weeks but it is also woven through our curriculum when we are using technology. We try to ensure that pupils are never left unattended whilst online at school and there are firewalls on our systems which protect against inappropriate content. If any member of staff or child suspects misuse, either by a teacher or child, the issue must be reported to the head teacher without delay. For more information, see our On-line Policy.
