Our E-safety policy reflects the importance of using information systems and electronic communication safely. We aim to keep our children safe online and also when using mobile phones, games consoles and wireless technology. We feel it is important to educate our children on the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
All of our pupils and staff have signed behaviour agreements and training is provided annually for both staff and pupils.
Ms Mulqueen is our e-safety co-ordinator and is happy to help with any problems you may have online.
A copy of our Esafety policy has been agreed by governors. It links closely to our behaviour policy, child protection policy and anti-bullying policy and is built into our Computing curriculum.
A big thank you to 'Childnet' who came in to educate the children, parents and staff in September 2016. We all learned about staying safe online in a fun, educational way. We will now follow up this learning in our PSHE and Computing lessons, reminding the children if they are ever unsure of anything to speak to an adult they trust.
Remember the Smartie rhyme. 'Before you tap and click you've got to stop and think and tell someone!'

In February 2017 we celebrated Safer Internet Day. But because we know of the importance of online safety we turned it into Safer Internet Week. This was a huge success for all the children here at Ramridge! They extended their knowledge of staying safe online with a range of activities and by 'buddying up' with a different year to share their learning. The key messages were tell an adult if you are unsure of something online; keep your personal information private and ask permission before taking and posting pictures.
The 3 winners of our poster competition were:
Dominic Toci (Yr R)
Kenzie Simper (KS1)
and Josh Chopade (KS2).
Congratulations to our winners who received a tablet each and everyone who took part. What a fantastic week it was!
Posters ranging from children in reception through to upper KS2.
