At St Ives we value the benefits technology and the digital world can bring. We recognise that for our pupils the internet, and the increasingly different and numerous devices that connect to it, are an integral part of their lives and will undoubtedly continue to be so throughout their future studies and careers. However, we also recognise that it is critical for their protection to equip them with solid foundations in safe internet usage.
All children at St Ives follow an age related e-safety programme as part of their computing curriculum.
We also take part in Safer Internet days and have been involved in e-safety learning initiatives with other United Learning Schools. We have a set of rules for safe internet/ computer usage which we share as a school and which the older pupils sign for themselves. (See e-safety policy appendix). Through our school protocols and computer network we have a variety of e-safety measures in place. Staff receive training in the potential problems associated with internet safety. More information on the approach to e-safety at St Ives is available in the e-safety policy.

The information and list of resources below is aimed at making sure parents have access to relevant information and advice to help ensure their children are safe when online outside of school too. We also run e-safety workshops for parents of pupils in all years. These are delivered by the Technology team at United Learning.
