Using the Internet Safely

Picture 1



We all want our children to be safe and that includes being safe on-line. Increasingly younger and younger children are using computers in and out of school and it is everyone's responsibility to make sure children stay safe as web users. Ivydale Primary School takes a multi-stranded approach to e-safety and parents and families are invited to come and talk to us at any time about any concerns they may be having about their children's use of technology.


We are in the process of setting up a school and family e-safety group to share knowledge and best practice to help our children become safe and resilient users of technology and the world wide web. Our first meeting is planned for early December so please get in touch if you would like to become involved. In the meanwhile this page contains a number of links to useful information. At the top of the page you will find links to the most current or topical areas of e-safety.  We hope you find this page useful but please talk to us about any further information you would like to see here.

Curriculum E-Safety


Ivydale School marks Safer Internet Day every year. In 2017 Children attended and delivered workshops and assemblies. They created safe selfies, spotted personal information and looked at the wider picture. Well done to Year Six for leading sessions and assemblies full of top tips for staying safe online.
