Online Safety Information

Our pupils are growing up in a world of ever-changing technology. While we feel that the use of technology is a largely positive aspect of modern life, we cannot ignore the risks that can be associated.

Throughout school we aim to teach children:

  • how and why people use the internet
  • the benefits of using the internet and digital devices
  • how people find things out and communicate safely with others online
  • the ways in which people can access the internet e.g. phones, tablets, computers
  • to recognise the purpose and value of the internet in everyday life
  • to recognise that some content on the internet is factual and some is for
    entertainment e.g. news, games, videos
  • that information online might not always be true
  • how the internet can be used positively for leisure, for school and for work
  • to recognise that images and information online can be altered or adapted and the
  • reasons for why this happens
  • strategies to recognise whether something they see online is true or accurate
  • to evaluate whether a game is suitable to play or a website is appropriate for their age-group
  • to make safe, reliable choices from search results
  • how to report something seen or experienced online that concerns them e.g. images
  • or content that worry them, unkind or inappropriate communication
  • that everything shared online has a digital footprint
  • that organisations can use personal information to encourage people to buy things
  • to recognise what online adverts look like
  • to compare content shared for factual purposes and for advertising
  • why people might choose to buy or not buy something online e.g. from seeing an advert
  • that search results are ordered based on the popularity of the website and that this
  • can affect what information people access
  • to identify different types of media and their different purposes e.g. to entertain,
  • inform, persuade or advertise
  • basic strategies to assess whether content online (e.g. research, news, reviews,
  • blogs) is based on fact, opinion, or is biased
  • that some media and online content promote stereotypes
  • how to assess which search results are more reliable than others
  • to recognise unsafe or suspicious content online
  • how devices store and share information
  • about the benefits of safe internet use e.g. learning, connecting and communicating
