We believe that when children go online to learn, to communicate or to play, they should be able to do so safely. That’s why we provide our pupils with the knowledge they need in order to tackle new and evolving online risks.
We teach our children regularly about how to be safe online and in a recent external monitoring visit we had linked to computing, the children’s awareness and knowledge about online safety shone through. Each year group could talk about ways to be safe online and they knew the rules.
Parents and carers, you play a crucial role in empowering and supporting children and young people to use digital technologies responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively. Indeed, parental influence, guidance and education have a significant and long-lasting impact on children’s safety and wellbeing in the online world.
