We place a high priority on our pupils safety. This includes all aspects of technology and e safety. We have a duty to our pupils to raise awareness of these issues as we appreciate that whilst safety and filtering procedures are in place in school, there is no fail safe system and pupils can often be exposed to dangers whilst accessing technology out of school hours.
In school, both staff and pupils adhere to Falkirk Council's acceptable use policy and all stakeholders have training on a regular basis. Our own school policies and procedures on these matters are regularly monitored and evaluated.
Parents and carers also have a role to play in promoting e safety at home and we have listed a few websites which you may find useful for further information. These are by no means an exhaustive list, but may give you a starting point. These websites are taken from the BECTA (British Educational Communications & Technology Agency)advice booklet and it is pointed out therein, that any inclusion does not imply endorsement by BECTA nor does any exclusion imply the reverse.
However, as always, if you have any queries or issues please do not hesitate to contact school.
