Here at Ashley, we take being safe online very seriously. We want our pupils to enjoy technology and the digital world and use it safely to enhance their learning. Read on to find out advice on how to keep safe online and how the Ashley E-Council are helping you!

Slides – E-Safety Parent Meeting 2018
To show that we are committed to Online Safety at Ashley School, we have signed up for the Online Compass E-Safety Accreditation. This is part of our ongoing development of E-Safety at Ashley. We are looking to progress to completing the E-Safety Mark from 360 Degree Safe.
Safer Internet Day – February
Ashley School celebrates Safer Internet Day every year.
The day offers the opportunity to focus on both the creative things that children and young people are doing online, as well as the role and responsibility that all stakeholders have in helping to create a better internet. Both Infant and Junior children explore the theme through an assembly and then met their E-Council.
Safer Internet Day is organised in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre in February of each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones for children and young people.
Here are some resources for parents to use at home with their children to help begin an open dialogue about using the Internet.
Ashley E-Safety Rules
In our classrooms and in the Discovery Room, we are reminded of the safety promises we have made with bright and colourful posters. Every half term we are reminded of these rules in our E-Safety Assembly where we tackle issues such as sharing information, cyberbullying and safe research.
Pupils are encouraged to share any worries about what they see, do or experience online with a trusted adult. This includes your teachers at school.
We would also like to recommend that any major concerns are reported to CEOP or by contacting Childline on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk
