Saltaire Primary School achieves 360 E-Safety Quality Mark

Saltaire Primary School has become the tenth school in Bradford to achieve to achieve the nationally recognised 360 E-Safety Mark Accreditation, for its work in teaching children how to stay safe online.

On Monday 25th April, an assessor visited the school and conducted an E-Safety review. He talked to staff, parents, technical support, children and governors to evaluate their knowledge and understanding. The school recognises that E Safeguarding is a crucial aspect of the curriculum. Children are accessing technology and the internet at an increasingly young age and as a result the concept of E-Safety is becoming increasingly important. The whole school community have worked together to develop and implement the computing curriculum with a particular emphasis on E Safeguarding.

Staff have worked alongside the Bradford Curriculum Innovation team to prepare for the assessment. As part of this work, strategies were developed to teach children about the ways in which they can keep themselves and their families safe whilst online.

Following the visit the Assessor reported that ‘The school delivers a very comprehensive range of effective CPD to staff and governors and provides quality support for parents through a range of effective communication mechanisms and particularly their ‘shared learning’ sessions with parents.’

The whole school community have worked together to achieve this award but a  special thank you goes to Mr Whitehead the school’s  E Safeguarding Coordinator, who has led  this project.
