Reporting an E-Safety Concern
At CCJ we understand the importance of E-Safety for our pupils, family and community. We want to ensure that every child in our care is safe, and the same principles apply to the ‘virtual’ or digital world as are applied to our physical world. We have strict filtering systems and policies in place to protect our pupils online as far as possible. Despite this, we understand that using digital devices and the web is never 100% safe, therefore we try really hard to ensure that our pupils are equipped for situations which might be unsuitable or uncomfortable both in school and when using technology at home.
Click here to see our Online Safety Policy or use the links below to support you with E-Safety at home and answer any questions you may have. If you need any further advice or support please do not hesitate to ask Mr Desmond, our E-Safety Officer or email on email@example.com or Miss Rendall, our Computing Lead firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a pupil or parent of a child at Christ Church Junior and you have an E-Safety concern that you would like to report (concerning anything at home or school) then please follow this link.
The CCJ E-Team
As part of Safer Internet Day we asked the children to design their own E-Safety Mascots, from which the school council would choose their favourite three to form the E-Team (see below).
The character on the left was created by Archie who says, "This hero has no power to actually stop bad things from happening. He can only try his hardest. This shows that anyone can be a hero, you don't need special powers to make the world a better place".
The central character was designed by Callum who says, " My hero has a guardian who can beat viruses. His super computer guardian helps him to stay safe and keeps him from harm. Together they can't be stopped!"
The final character was designed by Sam who comments that, "he can shoot lightening bolts from his fingers and disintegrates hacks and viruses from the device. He makes sure that you are safe on the internet and if a weird email shows up he will stop you from clicking on it and delete it as quick as a flash!"
You can see the winning entrants around the school - reminding us all to keep being SMART!
Our E-Team members wear a yellow badge around school. If you have a question, they may be able to help you.
How E-Safety is taught at CCJ
To enable our children to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly we teach an E-Safety lesson every term. This yearly overview allows teachers to specifically focus on one theme per term. The themes were carefully selected to provide children with the knowledge and opportunities to recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact and to make positive choices when using the internet across different platforms and programs. Our computing lead carefully crafts our E-Safety lessons to ensure the children are exposed to the most up to date content, to allow the children to relate the teaching to their own internet use and to ensure progression through your child's computing journey with us.
Alongside this, we deliver an across-school project each year for Internet Safety Day as well as two staff training sessions per year. We are part of a learning alliance with other local schools, therefore, we also share best practice on a regular basis throughout the school year.

As a school, we feel very strongly that your child is safest if they do not have any social media accounts.
