Safer Internet day information

During the Safer Internet day the children looked at how they use the internet. KS2 discussed what they are able to do online and how they should behave appropriately. In class we discussed the rules about how to behave and stay safe on the sites, games and apps we like to use. We talked about looking for buttons that let you block, mute and report other users who aren’t behaving and always ask for help if there is something you are not sure about.

Reception and KS1 discussed that when we go online there are lots of choices we have to make. For example, which game should I play? Should I reply to that message? Should I click that button? We talked about making choices that are kind, respectful and safe and always check with an adult if you’re unsure about something online.

E Safety Day 2013 

During the E Safety day the theme encouraged pupils to consider what their online rights were. They were asked the question - Do we have a right to access all information? Do we have a right to control our privacy?
