KEEPING SAFE ONLINE IS IMPORTANT TO ALL OUR CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND FAMILIES
Online Safety in Education
The most effective approach to internet safety is to treat it as a whole school community issue, with educational messages embedded across Computing/ICT, PSHE, SRE and citizenship, as well as touching on e-safety issues across the curriculum whenever and wherever children are using technology.
The Computing curriculum started from September 2014 and this provides a fantastic opportunity to develop your school's approach to internet safety. The Programmes of Study for Primary (KS1 & 2) and Secondary (KS3 & 4) were published last year by the Department for Education.
Internet safety is included in the Programmes of Study for all Key Stages to help ensure that young people are "responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology."
But internet safety is not just restricted to the Computing curriculum!
PSHE and SRE provide great opportunities for approaching a range of key internet safety issues such as cyberbullying, safe social networking, healthy digital behaviours, pornography, sexting, privacy and online reputation.
