With the help of the friendly dinosaur Pantosaurus, talking PANTS is a simple way to teach your child how to stay safe from abuse.
Shakespeare Infant school encourages parents and children to visit the CEOP www.thinkuknow.co.uk to keep you and your friends safe with Hector Protector and his friends. Security on our computer system is a high priority because there are so many users.
Shakespeare Infant school encourages parents and children to visit the CEOP website (Child Exploitation & Online Protection) to build knowledge of how to stay safe online;. This website has lots of fun activities which children can gain vital information on staying safe.

Internet access at Shakespeare Infant School is filtered by our Internet Service Provider (ISP) but ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources. We also have a secondary filtering provided by a dedicated internet server/router. This provides additional filtering which allows the children to only view certain pages.
Shakespeare Infant School has specially trained CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) Ambassadors who provide current advice on E-Safety to staff, parents and children. The following information can be found all around the school. If you have any worries or issues or want advice please talk to Mrs Kesterson.
What we recommend and teach the children about Personal Security Guidelines
Pupils are responsible for appropriate behaviour on the schools computer network just as they are in the classroom or in the school playground. Communications on the network are often public in nature. General school rules and the Behaviour Policy apply and it is expected that users will comply with the guidelines of this policy.
At the beginning of the year children are taught a series of E-Safety lessons that build their knowledge of how to stay safe online. The children also have refresher lessons each term and we take part in the nationwide Internet Safety Day.
Pupils could potentially have unfiltered, unsupervised internet access at home. All parents should be aware of the concerns and benefits of school internet use. Parents are therefore encouraged to look at government guidance available on the internet to help in the supervision of their children. We have also organised and will continue to organise E-Safety training for parents.
