Nansen pupils regularly use the internet through a range of technologies as part of their learning. The use of these tools in school, and at home, has been shown to raise educational standards and is a key part of our students’ everyday lives.
Nansen Primary School ensures that pupils have good access to these technologies to enhance their learning, and in return we expect pupils to be responsible users.
Our young people are entitled to safe internet access at all times, which we promote by:
- protecting the school ICT systems and users from accidental or deliberate misuse that could put the security of the systems and users at risk
- focusing on e-safety in all subjects, whenever internet access is used in the school
- providing e-safety sessions for pupils and their parents to help our young people stay safe wherever they are
Social networks, blogs, mobile phones and email are now a big part of our daily lives. They have important benefits, but there are also risks to be considered and evaluated.
Parents may not realise how often young people come across potentially harmful and inappropriate material on the internet. They may be struggling to keep up with the things their children are doing online, wondering whether the latter are safe, or how they can be as good parents online as offline.
To help, we recommend viewing these websites:
- Thinkuknow aims to make online parenting simple
- KidSMART helps young people to learn about internet safety.
- Please watch the video below.
As part of the Nansen community, we encourage you to discuss any issues with us, however small. If you still feel unsure about the risks and what to do, please contact Mr Beech at the school to arrange to attend one of our e-safety sessions for parents and students.
