Online or E-safety is a term which means not only the internet but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media, e.g. mobile phones. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.
The aim of promoting online safety is to protect young people from the adverse consequences of access or use of electronic media, including from bullying, inappropriate behaviour or exploitation.
In our school children are taught specific rules regarding online safety through direct teaching sessions at an age appropriate level.
The links on this page aim to provide additional support to our teaching in school. Parents and children can access the relevant resources to consolidate their learning.
Below is the CEOP KS1 Cartoon 'Lee and Kim' that teaches children 5 to 7 years about the importance of e-safety. Click on the video to play and it can also be enlarged to full screen.
Online safety displays around school also provide a visual reminder of using the internet safely.
