At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we aspire to provide our children with exceptional foundations in their knowledge and skills in using the internet to become perceptive, safe and discerning users of the internet. We do this by:
Protecting and educating our pupils, parents and staff in their use and understanding of technology.
Having the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incidents.
Striving to prevent any e-safety concerns through excellent teaching of e-safety.
Our school's achievement of the E-Safety Mark, awarded in July 2015, was a very proud moment for our school! We were the first school in Bedfordshire to achieve the mark, awarded through formal assessment of the quality of our online safety provision and a fantastic demonstration of our commitment to e-safety.
In our most recent E-Safety Day, the children spent time, deciding on and writing their own E-Safety Rules. The ideas were collated and three rules were decided upon. These rules are now clearly displayed in the Computing suite and on every computer in the Academy.

NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION

At Cranfield we recognise the importance of ensuring that children are safe using technologies both inside and outside of school. We hope that the below resources support you with this. Should you require advice, or have any questions about e-safety, please do not hesitate to contact our Computing Leader, Mrs J. Connell or our Deputy Headteacher, Mr J. Piatczanyn.
