At Morgans we want to encourage children to learn how to use the world wide web safely. Internet safety is vital and we work as a school to regularly update our Safe Internet Use policy and ensure that we are well aware of online safety and how to get the most out of the internet. We celebrate International Safer Internet Day, every year in February and learn how to use the internet safely at home and in school.
The internet and related technologies, including mobile phones, digital video, blogs, podcasting and social networks are becoming very important in the daily lives of our children and young people. Increasingly the technologies are being used in the classroom because they enable pupils to engage creatively with their learning. Socially our children and young people often use the internet for entertainment, interaction and communication with ‘friends’.
In school, the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning provides for a safe and secure online environment.
Schools have responsibilities for ensuring that all users follow their Acceptable Use Policy. Outside school access to the internet can take place anywhere and at anytime, so it is important pupils are able to use the ICT safely.
Please be aware of age restrictions for social media sites and have conversations with your child(ren).
