Today’s pupils are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks.
We want our pupils to be equipped with the knowledge needed to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considered and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world.
We teach Online Safety using objectives from the document “Education for a Connected World”, which we can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/education-for-a-connected-world
The document provides age-specific objectives stating the online knowledge and skills that pupils should have the opportunity to develop.
Online Safety tips for parents
The website https://www.kidsonlineworld.com/ gives parents and carers guidance about games/apps that children may be using at home. Please check the age ratings and talk to your child about what they are doing online.
If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s teacher or a member of school staff.
