Online Safety 

We recognise our pupils are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. We want to equip our pupils with the knowledge needed to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considered and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world. The online world develops and changes at great speed. New opportunities, challenges and risks are appearing all the time.

Our curriculum design provides the opportunities for pupils to explore a wide range of online issues such as:

  • Self-image and identity
  • Online relationships
  • Online reputation
  • Online bullying
  • Managing online information
  • Health, well-being and lifestyle
  • Privacy and security
  • Copyright and ownership

Online Safety education is integrated into the following areas of the curriculum:

  • Tutor time
  • The Assembly Programme
  • Personal Development Programme
  • PSHE
  • Computing
