A huge well done to Friends of Cranborne for organising fantastic events for our children this term. So far they have raised well over £8000 from the Fireworks, School Disco and Tesco Blue Token Scheme. Thanks to everyone who has attended events and supported the Friends with their fundraising efforts

E-Safety

Safety of pupils is a priority in Cranborne Primary School. We ensure that children stay safe and learn to make good choices and learn how to deal with situations that may arise. We have an E-Safety team at Cranborne consisting of Mrs Adams, Mrs Keilty and Mr Cocker. 

We know it is tricky to keep up to date with all the technology and the brilliant, exciting opportunities that this brings. We also know it is even harder to stay one step ahead of your children in keeping them safe. As a result we publish supporting information, tips, and opportunities for you to keep informed. If you feel you need more help  or would like to raise a concern, then please come and talk to one of our E-Safety team. 

 E-Safety Policy

During our last E-safety parents meeting, the following handouts were recommended by parents to pass on and make available to those who couldn't attend.

Quotes from parents regarding the evening included:

“Very good talk. Great for raising awareness and pointing parents in the right direction in terms of what to look out for and how to raise the topic with children.”  “Such a useful session. A great way to find out what our kids are learning about keeping safe online. Vital tips too for us parents to navigate our kids to keep safe online.”  “A very interesting insight into how dangerous the internet can be and has made me more acutely aware of how important it is to talk to our children about the danger.” “Informative talk about risks. As parents we need to keep up to date as technology changes and our children face new risks and witness thing that they are not old enough to process and can be distressing.”

Parents also said this is what they would do as a result of the information evening.

 

“Videos will be watched.”

“Internet security settings via Microsoft, setting up family settings. Links to E-safety videos.”

“Watch the CEOP videos with the children.”

“Watch E-safety videos with children and check safety settings on devices.”

“Individual child logins.”

“Check history, look at parental settings, review tablets and consider only PC use only.”

 "Move the PC in the lounge area and have tablets used in my sight."
