Children increasingly use the internet and technology in their daily lives to learn, research, play and communicate. The online world is a useful place for young people to explore, with great opportunities for learning and creativity, but just like the real world there are risks and dangers that children should be aware of and which we should all act to protect them from. As a school we encourage the use of technology as an important part of our students’ development but always want them to spend their time online safely.
Safer Internet Day 2021 was on Tuesday 9th February. Children in all classes, whether at school or at home due to COVID restrictions, had activities to do involving learning about online safety.
In our Computing lessons at school we support children to be safe online at home as well as at school. The websites below have information for parents with activities for children to reinforce E-safety learning.
There was a parent workshop about On-line safety in March 2020. Attachment below.
