At Padiham Primary School, the safety of our children and staff is very important and one key area we focus on is online safety. Through our computing curriculum and day-to-day work, we aim to equip our pupils with all the knowledge and understanding they will need to keep themselves and others safe whilst using computers, tablets, phones etc. Take a look at some of the information for parents below and follow the links to the websites which contain lots of useful hints, tips and support.
Online Safety in the new computing curriculum (2014):
In Key stage 1 children should:
Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
In Key stage 2 children should:
Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
Every year we celebrate safer internet day.
Google have create an online game where children can explore and roam around 4 different islands, taking part in quizzes, challenges and activities about online safety. As children explore the islands they will collect points and become an Internet Legend.
