E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Sproatley Endowed C of E Academy.
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. 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.
Mr Marshall is the school’s ICT leader and alongside Ebor’s technical team, takes responsibility for overseeing e-safety issues in school. E-safety evenings for parents have been provided to offer support, advice and any new updates with regard to specific apps and games. The school newsletter and facebook page will also offer advice and tips where appropriate.
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.

At the workshop the following documents were provided:
