Anglesey Primary Academy is protected by E-Safe as part of our trust safeguarding procedures. E-Safe is a robust and intelligent outsourced monitoring solution that’s designed to help educational leaders meet their statutory duty to safeguard students in their care – by taking the strain of detecting safeguarding risks early. E-Safe works around the clock – 24/7, 365 days a year – providing three vital components for detecting the subtle early warning signs of students who are potentially at risk and may require support.
Technology in the 21st Century is seen as an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Consequently, schools need to build in the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) covers a wide range of resources including; web- based and mobile learning. It is also important to recognise the constant and fast paced evolution of ICT within our society as a whole. Currently, some of the internet technologies children and young people are using inside and outside of the classroom include:
• Learning Platforms and Virtual Learning Environments, (Moodle)
• E-mail and Instant Messaging (AET Mail, Text to Parents)
• Chat Rooms and Social Networking (Facebook)
• Blogs and Wikis
• Video Broadcasting
• Music Downloading
• Mobile/ Smart phones with text, video and/ or web functionality
• Other mobile devices with web functionality
Whilst exciting and beneficial both in and out of the context of education, much ICT, particularly web-based resources, are not consistently policed. All users need to be aware of the range of risks associated with the use of these Internet technologies.
At Anglesey we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on e-Safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom. On this page we have also provided some e-safety advice materials for parents.
