Online Safety

Teaching children how to keep themselves safe online is an essential part of our children's learning. With the increasing use of digital technology both in school and within the home comes the increasing need to be aware of the potential dangers and to protect personal information online.

Children are taught lessons to help them make safe decisions when playing with others online, protecting their personal data, selecting most appropriate websites to use for homework and what to do if they come across any that makes them feel upset or worried.

They are also taught about the dangers of online bullying and to respect others when online.

We have 8 Key Stage 2 Digital Leaders, who are Online Safety Champions and who act as positive role models to all children in how they behave online. 

We ask our parents to remember that although we can teach children how to keep themselves safe online, it is in the home environment that these lessons are acted upon by children accessing the internet alone. 

Online Safety is one of the key topics studied within the new Information Technology National Curriculum as well as one of the areas that Ofsted look at when they inspect schools.
