Learning to stay safe online is as important as learning about any other element of keeping safe. Indeed, many of the potential dangers in the real have a digital equivalent. For example, you would never allow your child to talk to a stranger on the street, likewise you would never allow your child to talk to people they never knew on computer games or on social media.
Once a year, the school holds an anti-bullying week, which includes a focus on how to protect yourself against cyber-bullying. In Safety week, children have a session with an outside agency who teaches about being respectful and responsible whilst online. We always endeavour to keep abreast of trends nationally and locally and will advise children and/or parents accordingly. The school holds regular assemblies to promote keeping safe online, and is following a scheme of work created by South West Grid for Learning.
