The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at Leverton Academy spend a great deal of time using the internet within school and at home. 

We value computing within our school and encourage our children to experience different ways of accessing modern technology.  From laptops to iPads, our children are able to access a wealth of resources and explore different technologies to suit their learning styles. This is why it is important pupils learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.

The eSafety of our children is of paramount importance to the school and something that we monitor and revisit regularly. We also work closely with other schools and representatives to ensure that we are up to date with current advice and practice.  Our eSafety Policy explains how we do this.

We know that parents and carers will also be very concerned that their children are protected and safe when using the Internet, both in school and at home.  We have added some documents below that contain useful information on how to keep your children safe, tips on how to initiate conversations around the subject of eSafety and specific advice on online gaming. We have also included various links that will direct you to further information from external organisations. 

The Academy holds an annual 'Safer Internet Night' which is strictly for parents and carers, offering a range of practical advice and information that can help keep children safe at home. For more information about the next event, please contact the office.

To discuss any information relating to ICT or E-Safety, please contact Mr Mitton via the school office.
