Online Safety

Keeping children safe online:

Children today live in a digital world. The development of digital technology and the Internet has revolutionised how children (and adults) live their lives. Used appropriately this technology improves and enhances their lives in many ways. It also, however, presents opportunities for unacceptable behaviour and criminality among a small minority of people. We incoporate Online Safety into a range of areas of our curriculum, these include PSHE, Computing, English and Learning Journeys (included when researching about different History/Georgraphy themes).  

The continuing development of ‘Smartphones’, tablets and Internet enabled devices means that children can be ‘online’ at all times, which further highlights the need for children, young people and parents to be aware of the dangers and how best to stay safe while enjoying the benefits of digital technology.

Please see the resources below, for further information and support:
