Online Safety in the New Computing Curriculum
Our school is committed to providing a high quality, age appropriate, online safety curriculum to all of our pupils. We deliver these important messages through Computing lessons, Personal Health and Social Education and in any other relevant lessons.
We endeavour to keep you, as parents and visitors to our website, up to date with any new helpful information, as well as an giving you an insight into some of our online safety curriculum activities.
The National Curriculum requires us to support our children to:
Key Stage 1
- Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private
- Know where to go for help and support when they have concerns about material on the internet
Key Stage 2
- Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly
- Know a range of ways to report concerns and inappropriate behaviour
Our Online Safety Cadets
Keep your eye out for news about our brand new group of Online Safety Cadets being recruited in September 2018. Over the next year, they will be working with staff and governors to help keep all members of the Northlands community safe online. Last year our Online Safety Cadets worked hard to make sure we played games that were appropriate for our age. We wish to thank Jo Foote for her help with the music for this video which features on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Online Safety Stories
Below is a selection of the books that if you happen to come across these in the local library it would be lovely for you to share the story with your child as well! We have also provided links to a video story and some freely downloadable books here too -
