Safer internet Week 2019

During the week of the 4th February 2019, we are holding our annual E-safety Week

(connected to Safer Internet Day 2019 on Tuesday 5th February).

All children throughout our whole school will have the opportunity to learn and further develop their knowledge of E-safety related issues. 

The theme this year is 

'Together for a better internet'

 

Online Safety in the Computing Curriculum

"The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role and so providing a broad and balanced online safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively."
