E-Safety

E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at High Street Primary. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy. e-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.


It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem.

Education around safe use is essential.

As a school we have signed up to the 'National Online Safety' website. This entitles you to access the site as a parent user.

The website contains a wealth of information, videos and online courses to help you keep your children safe.
