E-safety is an integral part of every child’s education in today’s digital world and is therefore embedded in the curriculum at William Murdoch Primary School. We want to help our parents and pupils improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and other digital media in a safe and secure way.

As part of the curriculum and for the development of pupils’ computing skills, William Murdoch Primary School is providing supervised access to the internet. We believe that effective use of the world wide web is worthwhile and is an essential skill for children as they grow up in the modern world.

Although there may be concerns about pupils having access to undesirable material, we have taken positive steps to reduce this risk in school. Our school internet provider, Link2ICT, operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate websites and materials. However, this may not be the case at home and we provide references to information on safe internet access during each Parents’ Evening and upon request at any other time.

Whilst every endeavour is made to ensure that suitable restrictions are placed on the ability of children to access inappropriate material and websites, the school cannot be held responsible for the nature or content of materials accessed via the internet. The school will not be liable for any damages arising from your child’s use of the internet facilities.

The following rules help to keep everyone safe online: The following links provide further information for parents regarding using technology safely:
