E-Safety

ICT is all around us and every day we use technology to enhance our learning, find information, or for fun. At Ashingdon Primary Academy it is important that the children use ICT to enhance their learning journeys in a fun, safe and secure environment.

The children learn and use skills in ICT across all areas of the curriculum, but also have time to reflect and consider the importance of internet safety and appropriate use. As teachers and parents, there are many ways we can help our children to understand the technological world we live in.

The NSPCC has a section on its website about keeping children safe from abuse and other dangers, both online and in the physical world. This site also includes advice for parents on the safe use of Minecraft, Pokemon Go and Setting Parental Controls.

Our E-Safety Policy can be found here.

The Breck Foundation did a workshop with our Year 5 and 6 pupils about the potential risks of online gaming and how to keep themselves safe online. The Foundation will also ran a workshop for parents via Zoom on Thursday 25th November at 7pm.


For more information on the Breck Foundation, please visit their website.

Play virtual, live real.


Year 5 and 6 will be having an online safety session with The 2 Johns, who educate children, parents and schools about the dangers of online child exploitation and how to stay safe online. The children's session will take place on Tuesday 18th January, with a session for parents and carers on Wednesday 19th January. To find out more about The 2 Johns, please visit their website here.
