Online safety at St Mildred’s
All children in our school are taught how to stay safe online and how to use online devices safely as part of our Online Safety curriculum.
Our Year group termly planning incorporates online safety.
We have a set of rules that the children agree to before they can use the internet or mobile devices. A copy of this agreement is also sent home as part of our New Parents Pack when they start in reception so that you can support your child in their use of ICT at home. (Copies of these agreements and our school policies can be found under Key information)
Use the web links to help your child learn about staying safe when using the internet. You could see what Hector and his Friends get up to in Hector’s World or join Lee & Kim on their Animal Magic Adventure.
We also use Hectors safety button which the children click to hide the screen if they have seen anything that makes them feel uncomfortable. You can follow the link below to down load Hector on to your computers at home too!
Here are some links to useful information for parents to help you keep your children safe online.

All members of our school community are asked to sign an acceptable use policy which sets out the safe use of technology and the internet at St Mildred’s.
On entry to the school children and parents are asked to discuss our children’s acceptable use rules:
These are revisited regularly with the children during their time at St Mildred’s and these posters are displayed around the school as a reminder.

Online safety Update
From time to time we are made aware of new issues or concerns in the field of online safety. Through this page you can keep updated with the latest news. As an infant school many of these threats are unlikely to apply to children in our school’s age-range, but we feel families in our school community may still benefit, especially those with older siblings.
