Why do school or organisations need an Online Safety policy?

Schools and other settings must decide on the right balance between controlling access to the internet and technology, setting rules and boundaries and educating students and staff about responsible use. Organisations must be aware that children and staff cannot be completely prevented from risks using the internet. In accordance to Ofsted requirements young people need to be empowered and educated to make healthy and responsible decisions when using the internet in particular social media.

E-Safety like safeguarding must be a whole school or organisation approach and all staff must take appropriate measures to keep young people and themselves safe using the internet and social media. Members of staff also need to be aware and informed about how to manage their own professional reputation online and demonstrate online behaviours that are in line with their job role. Due to this schools and organisations should develop a holistic approach in writing and developing an effective e-safety policy that must embed safe practice for students and teachers/practitioners.


At Meadowside Primary School we believe that English is a fundamental life skill. English develops children’s ability to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes. Children are enabled to express themselves creatively and imaginatively as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as of non-fiction and media texts. Children gain an understanding of how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins. Children use their knowledge, skills and understanding in speaking and writing across a range of different situations and across different areas of the curriculum.
