Covid-19 has meant that many children are now learning from home. This usually means that they will be using technology. Here are some useful documents that will help you, as a parent or carer, ensure that your child is safe while accessing their online learning.
Internet safety is now more important that ever, with children doing so much remote learning. Every February, Quarry Mount Primary take part in Internet Safety day with lots of fun activities in school. This year, we will all be taking part at home. The activities will be done during the week beginning 8th February 2021. Here are some resources you may find useful to support your child during Internet Safety Day. If you would like to find out more about Internet Safety Day, please go to: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/
Here you can find all of the E-Safety guidance. New information will be posted here every week.
Although we do not allow children to use their mobile phones in school, there are a few parents who like their child to carry a phone so that they can contact them before or after the school day. If you feel it is necessary for your child to have a mobile phone with them, we ask that you complete a mobile phone registration form. This form is available in the Documents section below or from Miss Barrie in the office.
Mobile phones should be handed to the office on arrival at school and collected at the end of the school day. Children are not allowed to use their phones on or near the school site or on the playground. The school retains the right to confiscate any phone found in school during the day and will return it at the end of the day.
