Our children are growing up in a digital world in which technology is everywhere and an integral part of their lives. Whilst such technology provides our children with opportunities to learn and grow and will provide essential skills for their future, it can also expose them to certain risks. For this reason, Internet safety is always a priority in our school.
Throughout the year, all children take part in e-safety lessons in computing and PSHE which teach them how to use online technology in a safe and responsible manner. Lessons will also teach children what to do if they feel unsafe when online and give them the confidence to speak out. Child are also reminded of these responsibilities whenever using technology within the wider curriculum.
We are also committed to working closely with parents and carers when it comes to e-safety. Useful information will be provided every other week on the newsletter to help us all keep up with the different sites that our children might have access to and how to ensure they are being used safely. If you are ever worried or concerned about your child’s safety online, please do not hesitate to talk to us; we can offer advice and point you in the direction of some brilliant online safety websites with lots of useful information. In the meantime, please use the document below as a starting point.
