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.
Safer Internet Day – 9th February 2021
On Tuesday 9th February we joined schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2021. Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology, which calls on young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and more to join together in helping to create a better internet.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school and remotely. Celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year. Some of the activities we participated in on the day included: whole school assembly and home / class-based activities (some away from the screen), promoting discussions at home with families.
The theme of the day was all about how to identify real or fake news. Below we have included some information about how to talk to your child about fake news and how it can be recognised.
We encourage parents to join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help with this, you can download the free Safer Internet Day Education Pack for Parents and Carers which is available at: Safer Internet day for Parents
