Keeping children safe online
As a school, we believe online safety is a crucial area of a child's education and we are committed to raising awareness and educating children in this area. Online safety is taught regularly in every year group through our curriculum. Parental involvement is strongly encouraged, and we share support guides to help parents become more knowledgeable when supporting their children using the internet at home.
The school also promotes Safer Internet Day every academic year.
Our Digital Leaders are role models for other children. They lead online safety lessons and support pupil voice for the subject with school leaders. They have raised the profile of online safety within whole school assemblies.
Our curriculum provision is adaptable for the needs of our cohorts. We identify that challenges and trends change and as a school, we are able to respond this. Our computer systems are monitored to keep children safe and regular assemblies are held to support children to make safe choices when using technology.
Guidance for parents.
The DfE has updated guidance for parents and carers about keeping children safe online.
The BBC has a website and app called Own It. The website has a lot of content for children to help them navigate their online lives, and the free smartphone app comes with a special keyboard which can intervene with help and support in the moments that children need it the most.
