As a School, West Wimbledon Primary School is committed to ensuring that children are as safe as possible when using the Internet. To that end, we have been actively involved in the Safer Internet campaigns of 2016 and 2017, running a poster competition in 2017 for the children, as well as assemblies and activities for each class. Useful information for parents on keeping children safe whilst online may be accessed here:
Each year, in line with best practice, we review and amend the Acceptable Use documents we require staff, children and visitors to sign, and the document we send home to families, to ensure that each is consistent with the School’s Online Safety and Safeguarding policies, follows the expert advice we receive from Merton and the London Grid for Learning and meets statutory requirements. The documents we will use this year, may be viewed below.
In June 2017, the School hosted a practical advice session for parents and carers, presented by Merton’s Schools ICT Support Manager, Derek Crabtree. His comprehensive and very useful presentation may be accessed below.
