The children and staff at Giles Junior School are able to access the Internet through the Hertfordshire Grid for Learning (HGfL). The HGfL is a service currently supplied to all Hertfordshire Local Authority Schools.
The eSafety of children when using the Internet is of paramount importance to the school and we follow the latest advice of HGfL to inform our policies and practice.
Our latest eSafety Policy can be downloaded from this website.
We know that parents and carers will also be very concerned that their children are protected and safe when using the Internet. The HGfL website has a section dedicated to eSafety with advice to children, parents and carers, governors and school staff.
As a school, we advise that you look at the “Kidsmart” information with your child, especially the videos about Cara and the Crew, which can be found at:
This will help you to have a conversation about all areas of internet safety with your child.
