KEEPING SAFE ONLINE IS IMPORTANT TO ALL OUR CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES
Online Safety in the Curriculum
The Computing Progamme of the National Curriculum requires students to be able to:
use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
Schools therefore have a requirement to teach online safety across the whole school.
Activities that use digital technologies can make a really valuable contribution to the wider school curriculum and to children’s learning. Children and young people are generally engaged in the whole learning process when technology is being used.
It is essential for educators to recognise the benefits of technology and understand the many different ways that children and young people are using internet enabled devices, especially in the home and within social environments

Ofsted and Online Safety
In the context of an inspection, e-safety may be described as the school’s ability to:
Protect and educate pupils and staff in their use of technology.
Have the appropriate mechanisms to intervene and support any incident where appropriate.
Key Features of Effective Practice:
All teaching and non-teaching staff can recognise and are aware of e-safety issues.
High quality leadership and management make e-safety a priority across all areas of the school (the school may also have achieved a recognised standard, for example the e-safety mark).
A high priority given to training in e-safety, extending expertise widely and building internal capacity.
The contribution of pupils, parents and the wider school community is valued and integrated.
An age-appropriate e-safety curriculum that is flexible, relevant and engages pupils’ interest; that is used to promote e-safety through teaching pupils how to stay safe, how to protect themselves from harm and how to take responsibility for their own and others’ safety.
