Online safety is an important aspect of your child's learning. We take cyber safety very seriously at Fairfield. Our school has very clear rules for responsible Internet use which Mrs Seddon ensures are taught throughout the whole school on a regular basis. Our school has recently applied for the 360 Degree Safe Award, a quality mark recognition of the importance a school places on protecting children online and we will keep you informed of progress.
Every year, our school gets involved in SID (Safer Internet Day) when the whole school donates a lesson towards learning about a new aspect of online safety. In addition to this, our Community Police Officer holds a whole school assembly to remind children about rights and responsibilities of using the Internet. We also offer a presentation for our parents and carers on how they can manage and help children to stay safe online and we are very proud of the interest and feedback from our parents who always find these presentations informative as well as giving them a chance to ask questions.
Each class is taught about e-safety throughout the year. This is done through each subject where appropriate as well as through our Inclusions and Keeping Safe Week, Safer Internet Day, PSHE and our Computing curriculum.
Any incidents of cyber-bullying are logged and parents are informed. We aim to deal with such incidents in a sensitive and pro-active way.
