“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.
As they grow older, it is crucial that they learn to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and other’s online behaviour and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online.”
At Scotts Primary School, we want to educate and empower children to have positive online experiences. Online Safety is taught to all pupils focusing on how to stay safe and behave appropriately online. Our work in this area can only be effective if we work with parents to ensure the message is consistent. It is important that parents talk to their children about how they can stay safe and behave appropriately online.
