E-Safety in School
In school we recognise that it is crucial that children learn to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and others’ online behaviour, and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online.
Use the UK Council for Internet Safety's Education for a Connected World materials. Children have E-safety lessons throughout the year, in every year at school. As such, we create a culture of E-safety that is part of all we do. You can see our E-safety long term plan here.
This framework describes the Digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages of their lives. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it.
The document supports one of the key aims of the government’s Internet Safety Strategy of supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contribution online, as well enabling teachers to develop effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks.
We have a team of pupil E-safety leaders who work with staff and our E-Safety governor to audit our offer, communicate with their peers to get their opinions and help us improve our school offer.
We are also working to create bespoke E-Safety learning for identified vulnerable learners.
