Our Curriculum

E-Safety

Children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully.  They learn what personal information is and how to keep it private.  They also identify where to go for help and support if they have any concerns and they are also taught how to behave online.  

Full details can be found in our E-Safety policy below.

All children in Years 1 – 6 are asked to read through an E-safety agreement with their parents and the children are asked to sign to say they understand.  Please click on the buttons below to view these agreements.

Online Safety Update  – May  2022

Some children in school have been discussing online characters called Huggy Wuggy and Mommy long legs which are from a game and TV show called Poppy Playtime. The animated character goes by the friendly name of Huggy Wuggy, leading parents and children to believe the videos are aimed at youngsters and contain no inappropriate material. However,  the blue bear-like creature chases and threatens other characters in nightmarish scenarios, leaving many young children upset and frightened.

The character is from a survival horror game called Poppy Playtime, but has been made into popular videos which appear on YouTube and have seemingly slipped through parental controls. Poppy Playtime first appeared on Steam and is made by indie developer MOB Games. In it, the player plays as a former employee who is revisiting an abandoned toy factory previously owned by the game’s in-universe company Playtime Co.

It is available on the App Store and Android store and has a PEGI 12 rating, meaning it is only suitable for people over 12. Toys representing the character are sold on Amazon. The Huggy Wuggy character has also been recreated on Roblox, a virtual community where users can create their own 3D worlds with their own game players.

What is Poppy Playtime?

The game involves staying alive in a horror puzzle adventure. Within the game, vengeful toys wait for players in the abandoned toy factory. Players must grab packs in order to hack electrical circuits or nab anything from afar. As players explore the mysterious facility you try not to get caught.

This game is not suitable for primary aged children as it contains some frightening and disturbing content that is very upsetting to view.
