We teach children how to stay safe online during lessons throughout the year and with a detailed ficus on it during Internet Safety Day. If necessary, we adapt our curriculum to ensure children develop a deeper understanding of the importance to stay safe. This has included creating an English unit in year 6 about mobile phones and internet use.
PC Whitehouse works with us in school to help the children understand how to stay safe online. He works with different classes throughout the year.
