At Wynyard Church of England Primary School, we recognise that the internet offers a wealth of opportunities for supporting children’s learning and allowing them to communicate and work collaboratively. However, keeping children safe on and offline is of the highest priority for us as a school.
Children throughout school are taught about how to keep themselves safe online and how to report any concerns or worries they may have. Our Computing curriculums ensures that in every year group children are taught about how to keep themselves safe online and how to report concerns. However, we beleive that online safety teaching should be ongoing and staff maximise opportunities to reinforce key messages throughout the school day.
In school, we have a fantastic group of digital leaders with representatives from across the year groups who help to teach pupils about online safety. They were heavily involved in organising Safer Internet Week across school, which took place in February.
We regularly send out parent guides from National Online Safety alongside our weekly newsletter. Some of the most popular parent guides can be found below.
Below are a range of further resources to support both parents and pupils in staying safe online.
