It is Online Safety week on the week commencing 5th February 2018. All children will be participating in online safety activities throughout the week in school. The motto this year is:

Create, Connect and Share Respect

Digital Parenting - Safer Internet Day 2018 film for parents and carers

This film accompanies the Safer Internet Day education pack for parents and carers created for Safer Internet Day 2018. The film looks at what is important in digital parenting and signposts parents and carers to resources they might find useful.

In computing we will be using a scheme called ‘Switched on Computing’. E-safety is embedded throughout each topic in the scheme and some of the topics completely focus on being safe with technology. We hope this will raise the profile of e-safety in school and give the children confidence in being safe online.

Children have the knowledge to use technology, but often do not have the wisdom to use it appropriately.  By contrast, many adults have the widsom, but not the knowledge.  By talking to children about using technology wisely we can help to protect them.
