This year St Marys and the E-safety Champions are learning how to become ‘internet legends’ online. We are learning how to be safe and confident explorers of the online world using the google e-safety scheme. Each half term we will be focusing on one area of becoming internet legends. This half term we are focusing on becoming ’SHARP’ that means we are thinking before we share something. From foundation to Year 6 we will be thinking about how we should thoughtfully consider what we share and with whom as well as understanding the consequences that come along with sharing.
We use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and we want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We begin each term with 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and so we need to ensure we keep safe online.
