E Safety

E-safety is an integral part of the children's education at St Stephen's. As they start the school, all children read, discuss and sign an acceptable use policy which ensures all children understand the importance of using the internet responsibly.


Through our e-safety curriculum, we aim to provide children with the knowledge and skills they need to work, communicate and collaborate safely and effectively online. Our curriculum is broken up into 8 strands which run progressively through all year groups: internet safety, privacy and security, relationships and communication, cyberbullying, digital footprints, self image and identity, information literacy and finally creative credit & copyright.

As social networking sites (e.g. Facebook) become more and more popular we have included this in our curriculum for upper school. As a school we feel it is important to educate children about the potential risks associated with these sites and the importance of checking privacy settings. Below is a video created by CEOP, which is shared with children in years 5 and 6, that really highlights these potential risks.

Furthermore, we encourage all members of the school community to get involved with developing our e-safety policies and procedures through the school's e-safety group. This includes members of staff, children from the digital leader team, senior leadership, governors and parents who all work collaboratively to ensure e-safety procedures are effective in school. If you would like to get involved, please contact the office who will give you more information.


Below are a number of hyperlinks that will take to an array of information you can use to ensure your child continues to use the internet safely at home.

How E-Safe Are You?

At St Stephens, our aim is to ensure our e-safety curriculum covers the areas that are important to all members of the school community - including parents. Below is a link to our e-safety questionnaire which will help us inform our future curriculum. If you can spare 5 minutes to complete this, your opinions will help us ensure we can educate the children on the areas that matter.
