STARZ+ / E-Safety
Starz is our 'learning platform'. Every child in our school is provided with their own personal log-in to access their own part of this. They can email their friends, join or start a discussion forum, and write a blog. Starz provides a useful link between school and home, and also provides the children with a safe place to talk with their friends.

When STARZ is open, click on this sign (top right) to open additional learning activities.
STARZ includes the following features to keep children safe: individual user names and passwords, a safemail system where children can email others in our school, age-appropriate search engines and web-based resources. Alongside this, teachers have the ability to monitor chat, and children can whistle-blow anything they consider inappropriate themselves.
Our recent e-Safety Information Evening for parents was a great opportunity to find out more about how to keep your children safe online. See the top tips below, from Cambridgeshire ICT Service.
Top tips for keeping your children safe online:
Find out what your child is doing online
Assess the Risks and Opportunities:
- Where are the devices?
- What can they do?
- Can your child get online in his / her bedroom?
- Have you enabled any parental settings on devices / the internet as it comes into the house?
- Disable or cover webcams to avoid accidental sharing of images and talk to your child about the risks of sharing images
