Pupils at Cottam Primary School have access to a range of online materials that enrich and extend teaching and learning opportunities. The benefits to teaching and learning are many and varied. Pupils will be given clear objectives for Internet use and will access material under guidance from their class teacher. Teachers will supervise pupils and take all reasonable precautions to ensure that users only access material appropriate to their learning.
Cottam pupils are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private. Pupils are taught to identify where to go for help and support, and when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
We believe in working closely with our parents to support pupils in developing safe practice when using online technology.
