E-Safety and Digital Leaders

At St Mary’s on the Hill Primary School, our vision is to create motivated ‘life-long’ learners through the use of ICT to enhance and extend learning and teaching across the whole curriculum.  As ICT is continually developing and new technologies emerging, we as a school will strive to give all pupils the skills to prepare them for a future in which ICT is an integral part of society. 

Our pupils are regularly instructed on how to stay safe on the internet and how to use communicative technology appropriately. Each year we celebrate Internet Safety Day and organise appropriate talks with external agencies. We also hold information sessions for parents; provide copies of policies on our website. 

Children are taught to be Internet Wise (netiquette).  Children are made aware of Internet Safety Rules and are encouraged to follow the SMART tips for staying safe online.  Please see the links below which may be useful to parents regarding internet safety.

Digital Leaders are used within school to enhance and assist in the use of ICT.  These children have a variety of duties which they are responsible for.  This includes charging ICT equipment, training class technicians and ensuring that all iPads and class computers are switched on and ready to use. They are required to attend monthly meetings with the ICT coordinator to discuss new initiatives.  Each Digital Leader has been given a year group to work with.
