Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe. Extensive security measures are in place, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Online safety is taught in every year group so that children know and can demonstrate how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
Digital Leaders are active around school and will report any issues to teaching staff. They led a school competition to design online safety posters and the winning two posters can be found in every area of the school.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the Online Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. We ensure that we update and support our parents by emailing relevant and up to date information from www.nationalonlinesafety.com.
It’s essential to be realistic – banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Our children are growing up in a technological world and education around safe use is essential.
