Safety Online


Children are now born into a digital world, which undoubtedly gives them fantastic opportunities to learn; develop new skills and to keep in touch with family and friends. However, just like the real world, it is important young people stay safe and that you (as parents and carers) feel fully equipped to help them develop the knowledge and resilience they need for digital life.


Digital life comes easy but the implications can potentially hit hard.


If you have any concerns or simply want some advice about online safety, please get in touch with school. You can also visit Linking Learning: a social enterprise which offers educational support and advice to parents and carers, including collecting the most useful and latest guidance about how to stay safe online. Click here to access lots of useful tips.

How does our curriculum support you and your children staying safe online?

Our Computing curriculum places your children's safety at its heart. All classrooms, from early years to year 6, explore the most up to date online issues in an engaging way and at an age appropriate level. We use planning and resources from 'National Online Safety ', which have been developed in line with and to support statutory policy and recommended guidance.


The NOS brand-new lesson plans are directly aligned to and support the:

  • UKCIS ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework;
  • DfE ‘Relationships education, relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education’ statutory curriculum; 
  • DfE ‘Teaching online safety in school’ guidance



How can you support the school?

  • support the school in promoting online safety which includes the pupils’ use of the Internet and the school’s use of photographic and video images;
  • read, sign, and promote the Pupil Acceptable Use Agreement and encourage their child to follow it;
  • consult with the school if they have any concerns about their child’s and others’ use of technology;
  • promote positive online safety and model safe, responsible, and positive behaviours in their own use of technology (including on social media) by ensuring that they themselves do not use the Internet/social network sites/other forms of technical communication in an inappropriate or defamatory way;
  • support the school's approach to online safety by not uploading or posting to the Internet any images or details of others without permission and refraining from posting pictures, video or text that could upset, offend, or threaten the safety of any member of the school community or bring the school into disrepute.

Layers of Safety

We can never assume each layer, on its own, is 100% effective. However, used together, we can ensure we keep our children safe, informed and empowered.
