We held an eSafety talk for parents on Wednesday 16th November from Richard Maskray, HfL eSafety advisor.  If you were unable to attend, please see the presentation below.

E Safety

We value computing within our school and encourage our children to experience different ways of accessing mobile technology. From laptops and IPads through to games consoles and e-readers, our children are able to access a wealth of resources and explore different technologies to suit their learning styles.

At Kimpton Primary School, we are fully committed to the safeguarding of pupils and take eSafety very seriously. With the support of parents, we pro-actively teach our pupils how to keep themselves safe online. We also work closely with Hertfordshire Grid for Learning (HGfL) to ensure that we are up to date with current advice and practice. Our eSafety Policy explains how we do this and is available for you to download below:

Kimpton E Safety Policy

This policy outlines our guidelines on ICT Acceptable Usage for both pupils, parents, staff, governors and visitors.  Please be aware of what this entails when signing this agreement when you join the school.

ICT Acceptable Usage Agreement

Our parents and carers are also very proactive, ensuring that their children are protected and safe when using the Internet, both in school and at home.  Richard Maskrey held staff and parent workshops in November 2017 to support parents in areas to be aware of and how to ensure their children are safe.  If you were unable to attend, please find the presentation below:

We have also included various links that will direct you to further information from external organisations.
