E Safety

At Seaham Trinity Primary School, we recognise the importance of Computing and how it supports the teaching and learning of other curriculum subjects.  With the help of our Computing coordinator, we are always striving to find new and exciting ways to develop pupils computing skills. However, we are also very aware that  we have a unique role in protecting children while preparing them for life outside of school; a life that now includes an ever expanding online world.  Our computing curriculum includes an element of E-Safety; we aim to educate and empower pupils so that they understand the risks, make safe informed choices, build resilience and ultimately become good “cyber citizens” of the future.

To support this the  whole school takes part in Safer Internet Day every year in February, which is underpinned by the safe and responsible use of technology. The children attend special assemblies about keeping safe when using the Internet and access a series of lessons aimed at developing their understanding of the safe use of different types of technology both in their home and the wider world. Parents are invited in for Safer Internet assemblies and to take part in Internet awareness sessions organised by the Computing Coordinator, which always prove popular.

We expect all children and adults at Seaham Trinity Primary School to follow our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) when using technology at school.  Click on the link to download a copy; it could be useful at home too.

Acceptable Use Policy

Children in years 5 and 6 whose parents give written consent are able to  bring their mobile phone into school must place them in a box in the morning which is kept in a safe place and returned in time for the children to go home.

In addition, our E safety Policy can be found by clicking on the hyperlink or going to the ‘Key Information’ tab, then policies.

As with all safeguarding, Keeping children safe online is everyone’s responsibility. To enhance our ability to carry out this  shared responsibility, please find a list of resources to support staff and parents to  keep children safe online:
