Internet Safety

We keep children safe in school in a number of ways.

Children are always supervised whilst surfing the internet. The schools emailing system DB Primary, is tracked and monitored by staff and all messages can be seen. Children can report any negative mail to any/all members of staff to be dealt with. This includes any mail sent whilst the children are surfing DB Primary at home.

DB Primary can be accessed by clicking here.

The school network prevents children and staff from accessing social networking sites and anything that is considered inappropriate content for children. We have invested heavily in Smoothwall, a pioneering real-time system that identifies and filters inappropriate web content and blocks access to it. It contains an effective reporting system so the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher are made aware of any misuse of school's equipment immediately so appropriate action can be taken.

Pupils cannot access games that are non-educational and are not permitted to use messenger to talk to their friends whilst in school.

We teach children to be smart thinkers when it comes to internet safety. They know about protecting themselves online and the do's and don'ts of the internet both at school and at home. 

All staff and pupils sign an Acceptable Use Policy agreeing to schools' terms and conditions for using school computer equipment and devices.
