The internet is a fantastic tool and there is a wealth of information online. We encourage all our pupils to use the internet to extend their knowledge and understanding around a range of subjects.
The internet can, however, be a daunting and sometimes dangerous place for children. We regularly teach online safety within lessons across all age ranges within school.
As a parent you need to be aware of the risks your child will face when they use the internet and other electronic forms of communication. On this page, you will find some useful material to help you keep your child safe online.
Safer Internet Day 2018 was celebrated globally on Tuesday 6th February 2018 with the slogan “Create, Connect and Share Respect: A better internet starts with you”.
Activities took place across the UK to inspire a national conversation to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
Whole School Activity
Our Year 6 Digital Leaders led a whole school assembly explaining how digital technology can be used safely, whilst also highlighting some dangers associated with unsafe use.
Year 6 Digital Leaders also delivered lessons to all classes in years 3-6. They focussed on how children might feel in a range of online situations, for example: if a friend shared an embarrassing photograph to classmates via text message.
They recorded their thoughts on a feelings thermometer ranging from happiest to most upset.
