The internet can be an amazing tool to use in and outside of school! We consider E-Safety to be very important at our school and discuss it often. It is very important that you are aware of all the things you can do to keep yourself safe online.

As part of the #WakeUpWednesday campaign, National Online Safety have teamed up with Music Alternative to launch a Fortnite online safety song to share with schools and their communities.
This campaign highlights the importance of staying 'switched on' to the online dangers that games such as Fortnite pose to our children and strategies for managing privacy settings.
Inappropriate use of Social Network Sites or Group Discussion Pages
Social media websites and discussion groups are being used increasingly to fuel campaigns and complaints against schools, school staff and in some cases other parents or pupils.
The Department for Education, the Government and the Governors of Manea Community Primary School considers the use of social media websites being used in this way as unacceptable. Any concerns you may have about the school or your child/children must be made through the appropriate channels by speaking first to the class teacher and then the team leader, Deputy Head or Head Teacher where they will be dealt with fairly and appropriately. If your concern has not been dealt with to your satisfaction then the school complaints procedure may be used by contacting the Chair of Governors.
Libellous or defamatory posts (a defamatory statement is one which would tend to lower the subject in the estimation of people) – In the event that any pupil or parent/carer of a child/children at Manea Community Primary School is found to be posting libellous or defamatory comments on Facebook or other social networking sites, they will be reported to the appropriate ‘report abuse’ section of the network site. All social network sites have clear rules about the content which can be posted on the site and they provide robust mechanisms to report contact or activity which breaches this. The school will also expect that any parent/ carer or pupil removes such comments immediately.
Cyber Bullying – we take seriously the use of cyber bullying by children or parents. We will take can deal with this as a serious incident od school bullying.
The school will consider its legal options to deal with any such misuse on social networking, discussion groups and other sites.
