Online Safety

Lindley CE Infant School recognises the commitment of our school to keeping staff and pupils safe online and acknowledges its part in the school’s overall safeguarding policies and procedures. It shows our commitment to meeting the requirement to keep pupils safe when using technology. We believe the whole school community can benefit from the opportunities provided by the internet and other technologies used in everyday life. Our school supports this by identifying the risks and the steps we are taking to avoid them. It shows our commitment to developing a set of safe and responsible behaviours that will enable us to reduce the risks whilst continuing to benefit from the opportunities. We wish to ensure that all members of the school community are aware that unlawful or unsafe behaviour is unacceptable and that, where necessary disciplinary or legal action will be taken. We aim to minimise the risk of misplaced or malicious allegations being made against adults who work with pupils.

As part of our commitment to Online Safety we also recognise our obligation to implement a range of    security measures to protect the school network and facilities from attack, compromise and inappropriate use and to protect school data and other information assets from loss or inappropriate use.

Snap Chat 'Snap Map'

As a primary school our children are too young to be legally using Snap Chat, however, as many children do have older siblings, we would like to make you aware of the following child safety warning which has come to our attention.

In June 2017, the police issued important information for parents of children using Snapchat on their mobile devices regarding the new 'Snap Maps' feature which enables location-sharing mode. This feature displays a map of nearby friends, showing their latest location gathered using a smartphone's GPS sensor. Users of the app can also search for locations such as individual schools, with the app displaying public photos & videos sent by students. Parents are advised to turn off 'Snap Maps'.

The link below connects to a Daily Telegraph article which discusses the dangers of this Snap Maps feature.
