Stowting CEP School recognises the essential and important contribution that technology plays in promoting children’s learning and development and offers a fantastic range of positive activities and experiences. However we also recognise there are potential risks involved when using online technology and therefore have developed online e-Safety policies and procedures alongside the school’s safeguarding measures.
The school takes responsibility for your child’s online safety very seriously and, as such, we ensure that pupils are educated about safe use of technology and will take every reasonable precaution to ensure that pupils cannot access inappropriate materials whilst using school equipment.
For the third year running Stowting year 6 pupils have come first in Project Salus Safety in Action. The A team scored 99 points out of 100 for the highest ever recorded score from over 500 competing schools.(our B team came second this year as well!)
For further information please see the school’s policies on e-Safety and the Acceptable Use below.

Enjoy the wonders of the Internet in a responsible manner.
