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 click the image below to access 'Think You Know', which is a wonderful resource for engaging children of different ages...



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 'Project Evolve', which have been developed in line with and to support statutory policy and the latest recommended guidance.


What is ProjectEVOLVE?

ProjectEVOLVE resources each of the 330 statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World” with perspectives; research; activities; outcomes; supporting resources and professional development materials. 

The vibrant new content has been written by a team of experts here at the UK Safer Internet Centre. It’s up to date; relevant and engaging and moves online life education into the third decade of the 21st century.

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.
