At St Helen’s we promote an understanding of e-safety for children, staff, governors, parents and carers with the aim that our pupils know what it means to use the online world safety and effectively.

Our school has recently been awarded the  360 degree safe accreditation.

Our Scheme of Work for E-safety covers three main themes:

Contact: Do you know who you're communicating with? How do you know this for sure? 

Content: Is what I'm seeing appropriate? What do I do if it isn't? Who is my trusted adult?

Conduct: Am I behaving in an appropriate, respectful manner? Would others be upset by how I behave online? 

We follow a scheme set out by Purplemash, which follows the national curicullum. Where/ when we feel it is necessary we provide additional lessons to ensure our children are safe online. 

Further information:

To help ensure your child is safe online, we are subscribed to Senso, which is a school e-safety software. 

Our internet is provided by School's Broadband (as of September 2023), which provdes our school's filters. 

Below are helpful documents and website listed for your information.
