It is vital that children remain safe and secure while using Information Technology. E-Safety is a major focus; not only within our pupils' ICT lessons, but right across the curriculum.
We teach our pupils how to use technology safely and responsibly - both within, and outside of school. Since pupils have increasing access to IT beyond school (computers, mobile phones, tablets etc), it is vital that they do use these safely. There are several very good websites that address safe and responsible use of technology.
We have included links to very useful websites, please take a look at them:
Our Digital Leaders
We have 8 digital leaders in school, that have now completed the Childnet Digital Leaders Programme that has empowered our children to champion digital citizenship and digital creativity within our school and to educate peers and teachers about staying safe online.
We are now part of an exciting online community with training and ongoing support from Childnet’s team. This is making
e-safety learning fun and effective and our school is working towards an outstanding whole school community approach to e-safety.
From completing the digital leader training our digital leaders would like to share their thoughts and feelings about the training and what it has meant for them.
" Meeting with the Digital Leaders has made me feel a lot more confident with online safety. Something I would like us to do next is to go to another school and talk to them about it and share ideas." - Sienna
