At Ermine Primary Academy, we take E–Safety very seriously.
Whilst technology is a wonderful thing, children need to be taught the skills to use it appropriately and protect themselves on-line. E-Safety skills are taught throughout the year as part of our ICT lessons as well as an annual E-Safety week to refresh and update their knowledge.

Reporting an e-Safety issue
You can report an e-Safety issue using the CEOP button which is located on our school's home page. This button will take you to the relevant phone number and email address you need in order to report a problem.
Alternatively, we are always happy to help at school with an e-Safety issue. Should you or child wish to report a problem, please speak to your child's class teacher, who will then notify an e-Safety leader.
The issue will then be dealt with and monitored by our e-Safety team and the Head teacher.
