Online Safety

Our Safer Internet Team

Our Computing curriculum has online safety threaded throughout and you can find out more about this by visiting our Computing Curriculum Page here:


Online Safety in school is also supported by our Internet Safety Team which the children in school vote for during the Autumn term each year. With our Computing Coordinator (Miss Kamillo) a team of Year 1 and Year 2 pupils meet regularly to share important information about how to stay safe online.


Autumn Term:

In an Online Safety Assembly we watched this video- - which helped us to re-cap our Acceptable Use Policy and the importance of asking a trusted adult before going online. We also thought about who we could talk to if we felt worried about anything that we experienced online:

We voted for our Safer Internet Team:



The team will meet each term to talk about some of the important aspects of online safety and they will then have chance to share this with the rest of their class too. In our first meeting we talked about who our trusted adults are, thinking about who we can ask for help if we are worried or unsure about something.

Spring Term

This term we celebrated Safer Internet Day in school...


We shared online safety themed stories such as Hashtag Goldilocks and Old Macdonald had a phone which inspired our discussions around the ways we can stay safe in the online world. We also explored Project Evolve Lessons linked to Health and Wellbeing.

In the same week our Key Stage One pupils enjoyed participating in the Into the Screen Workshops using traditional tales to explore online safety skills and rules further.

Being Safe Online:


With technology updating so quickly and becoming so much cheaper, it is fantastic that we now have the world at our fingertips and can learn in new and engaging ways. However, we have to make sure we are using new technology safely and appropriately and that our children are aware of the dangers of chatting online or sharing personal information. As part of both our PSHE and Computing curriculum, we have lots of discussions around using the internet safely. As part of this curriculum we use Project Evolve lessons which you can read more about here:

There are also some great stories that we use to encourage discussion around online safety in a child friendly way such as Smartie the Penguin, Penguin Pig and Chicken Clicken.


Resources available for children aged 4-7 can be accessed on the CEOP website. You can access the videos here:

top Tips

· Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.

· Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.

· Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.

· Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.

· You can also call ‘Childline’ on: 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.
