Online Safety is taught to all classes every year as part of our comprehensive PSHE curriculum - we also focus on this topic during Internet Safety Week and have regular visits from West Mercia Police to work with our children, we also offer parent workshops yearly and Upper Key Stage 2 work on the STAR programme.
The ‘Thinkuknow’ website is a great source of information for parents/carers regarding internet safety. Please follow the link below:
Safer Internet Week Feb 8th- Feb 12th
During Safer Internet Day Year 2 thought carefully about how the World Wide Web connects people. We then created our own web to say how each member of the class are connected.
We also thought about messages that are posted online or sent by mobile phone and discussed what content they should contain. We wrote kind messages on post-its. These will help us to remember that although we can’t see people when we are on the Internet we still need to be kind.
We created digital footprints to remind us that whatever we do on the Internet can leave a trace and builds up a picture of the things we like and dislike.
Year 4 discussed the good and bad experiences we have with friends online. We thought sending positive comments and helping each other out with games were great, but sending unkind messages was a definite downside to chatting online.
