At Constantine School we all love using ICT and the Internet to teach, to learn and to have fun, and we take online safety very seriously. Our staff and children are knowledgeable about the dangers associated with using the internet and are well trained about how stay safe on line.

E-Safety is explicitly taught in PSHE and ICT throughout both Key Stages using differentiated and engaging sequences of lessons designed by Childnet and Think U Know. Every year we get involved in Safer Internet Day and do lots of fun activities that further remind us of the importance of staying safe while enjoying the Internet responsibly.

Our E-Safety and Acceptable Use Policies are robust, regularly reviewed and updated and are reflective of the best practice advised by the South West Grid For Learning. Those policies, along with the schemes of work for teaching E-Safety can be viewed by clicking the links below:
