Online Safety

Pupils at Sherwood Primary School have access to a range of online materials that enrich and extend teaching and learning opportunities. The benefits to teaching and learning are many and varied.

Internet access will be carefully planned to enrich and extend learning opportunities as an integrated aspect of the curriculum. Pupils will be given clear objectives for Internet use and will access material under guidance from their class teacher. Teachers will supervise pupils and take all reasonable precautions to ensure that users only access material appropriate to their learning.

Sherwood pupils are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private. Pupils are taught to identify where to go for help and support, and when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

Shewood Primary School uses a Lightspeed Rocket Web Filter system to filter inappropriate content from users in school. We also monitor online activity of staff, children and visitors to Sherwood Primary School. A report is generated on a weekly basis and reviewed by the ICT Subject Leader and Senior Leadership team on a termly basis. An action that arises from this is reported to the Governing Body.
