Pupils at Magdalen learn about using the internet safely and appropriately through the computing and PCSHE curriculums. They also participate in e-safety activities during extended learning days, assemblies and tutor time activities. Pupils and parents are asked to sign the Acceptable Use Policy on joining the school.

We run an annual E-Safety Information evening for parents and carers, which explores creating boundaries, the latest crazes and issues.

Pupils are allowed to bring their mobile phones into school, however they are only to be used at morning break and lunchtime. At ALL other times they are expected to be switched off and out of sight. If they are seen or used inappropriately the phone will be confiscated and a sanction issues, further details about this are available in your child’s planner. The taking of photographs with phones is forbidden.

Further details about our school systems to monitor the use of the internet in school can be found in our E-Safety Policy
