“We all share a responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent, or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer or as a paid or volunteer worker. All members of the community can help to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people and should act to do so if they have concerns about a child’s welfare”

E-safety is a vital part of our work to keep children safe. In school, we have a broad range of measures in place to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material on the internet. Any incidents or breaches of e-safety are identified, recorded and managed in accordance with our E-Safety Policy. The responsibility for e-safety is not solely delegated to technical staff or those with a responsibility for ICT and/or Computing but rests with of all members of the school community who work with our children.
All our pupils are taught how to stay safe and how to behave appropriately online. The school participates actively in the national, annual Safer Internet Day each February.
Every pupil is made aware of our Acceptable Use Agreement and parents are required to sign a copy on their behalf when they start at the Severn Primary.
The following are all useful websites which provide additional support and guidance for children, parents and carers.
