Online Safety

With technology updating so quickly and becoming cheaper it is fantastic that we have the world at our finger tips and can learn in new and engaging ways. However, we have to make sure we are using technology safely and appropriately. The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children. 

Here at Brockwell Nursery and Infant School, children are taught about Online Safety through our PSHE and Computing curriculums. Regular assemblies also take place throughout the school year to encourage a thorough understanding of the issues relating to Online Safety, using story  books such as "Once Upon A Time Online" and "Chicken Clicking",  alongside resources from The National College. The National College also supports our teaching of Online Safety in lessons, as well as providing resources for all parents and carers.  

The resources include online video resources and weekly guides covering a huge range of topics, including:

·         Online Relationships

·         Fake Profiles & Social Bots

·         Online Bullying

·         Online Grooming

·         Child Sexual Exploitation

·         Sexual Harassment & Violence
