Online safety is an integral part of our school curriculum. This is vital to help the children from reception to Year 5 to enjoy the wonderful opportunities that our increasingly technological world can offer. We take the opportunity to raise awareness of Online Safety through assemblies and it is high profile during National awareness events such as Anti-Bullying Week and Safer Internet Day.
In school, we have regular e-safety activities and assemblies to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. To help us remember the main principles of staying safe online, we use the 'SMART' rules. We also intervene very quickly if we are made aware of any on-line safety issues within our school community.
In school we use the 'Thinkuknow' website, which provides activities for children to help them understand the importance of staying safe online. There is even a section to guide parents. Click on the links below to find out more.
If you have any other questions or worries about staying safe online, speak to an adult at home or at school.
