Online Safety


With the use of technology increasing in our world, now more than ever it is important to keep children safe online.


On Safer Internet Day, the children in year one discussed the uses of the internet. We thought about the positives of using ICT to help research and learn new facts. The children shared their experiences of being online, and how the behaviour of others can be unkind and where they can find help and support.

Here are some links for more information:                                 

Below is a video from CEOP, which teaches some handy tips of how to stay safe online in a story.

CEOP KS1 Film : 'Lee & Kim' Cartoon Suitable 5 yrs -- 7 yrs
