Ewyas Harold Primary School E Safety Policy can be found on the policy page
E Safety encompasses Internet technologies and electronic communications such
as mobile phones as well as collaboration tools and personal publishing. It highlights the
need to educate pupils about the benefits and risks of using technology and provides
safeguards and awareness for users to enable them to control their online experience.
The Schools' E-Safety Policy reflects the need to raise awareness of the safety issues associated with electronic communications as a whole.
E-Safety depends on effective practice at a number of levels
- Responsible ICT use by all staff and students; encouraged by education and made explicit through published policies.
- Sound implementation of e-safety policy in both administration and curriculum, including secure school network design and use.
- Safe and secure internet provision by Edutech Solutions Ltd.
Our E Safety Policy has been written by the school, building on that proposed by BECTA E Safety Policy and government guidance. It has been agreed by senior management and approved by governors.
An E Safety Coordinator and a named governor takes responsibility for E Safety.
The E Safety Policy and its implementation are reviewed annually.

There is a new chat app circulating called Omegle, where they state it ‘is a great way to meet new friends, even while practicing social distancing.’ When you use Omegle, you are paired randomly with another person to talk one-on-one or you can add your interests and you’ll be randomly paired with someone who selected some of the same interests. This can be extremely dangerous as you do not know who you are chatting to and can swap contact information. Please ensure your children are clear on e safety guidelines.
