Welcome to the e-safety section of the school website. At Gotherington, children are exposed to ICT from the time that they start school. Technology plays an integral role within every classroom. It is embedded in Reception and is a constant and prevalent feature of school life. With the advent of Web 2.0 technologies, which places emphasis upon online collaboration and sharing, the children are increasingly ‘creators’ of digital content and not just ‘passive recipients’. They are developing their IT skills as well as skills in creativity, communication and networking.
It makes sense for children to be taught responsible use of these technologies both in school and at home. To enable you to do this, a number of links to e-safety websites have been provided for you. Please take time to use them with your children. You can also read the latest E-safety policy can be found and downloaded from the Policies section. If you find any other sites which you feel are effective please let us know.
The following E-safety website will enable you to develop e-safety at home:
