Online Safety

Scotts Primary School is fully committed to keeping all of our pupils safe. Learning about online safety happens through a range of subjects and approaches.  You can find our long term plan for online safety here. 

 

Online Safety INTENT STATEMENT

“Children have the right to enjoy childhood online, to access safe online spaces, and to benefit from all the opportunities that a connected world can bring to them, appropriate to their age and stage” (UKCIS, 2020). 

At Scotts Primary School we want our pupils to become digitally literate, critical, safe and responsible citizens to enable effective and enjoyable experiences in a digital world. We are fully committed to keeping all of our pupils safe and recognise that learning about online safety happens through a range of subjects and approaches. We have adopted the UK Council for Internet Safety’s, ‘Education for a Connected World’ (2020) as a framework of knowledge and skills to support and broaden the provision of online safety education within our school.  We recognise that online safety education is a whole school matter and goes well beyond the computing curriculum alone, therefore, our teaching of framework objectives will come in many forms, for example, through discrete online safety, PSHE or RHE lessons, as well as other curriculum areas, pastoral interactions, home learning, assemblies and special events.   With this approach, it is our intention that pupils will build resilience and develop safe and appropriate behaviours online, which in turn will lead to positive online experiences.

Self-image & identity - Autumn 2021

In year 4, we have been learning about how online and offline identities can be different.  We created storyboards to show how we would deal with situations where someone may be pretending to be someone else.
