Internet Safety for children is important which has also been recognised through the Government's KCSIE 2023 (Keeping Children Safe in Education) At St John the Baptist, we constantly review our internet safety procedures to ensure our pupils are not only protected from the dangers of the Internet but are also fully informed and educated on how best to deal with online threats and concerns.
Being educated about Internet Safety is an essential life skill. Providing children with the knowledge to protect themselves and their personal information is a key focus throughout our pupils’ digital learning.
E-SAFETY IN THE HOME
Having an e-safe environment is not as daunting as it may seem. Although the opportunities for connecting with others using technology is vast, and growing all the time, parents, carers and other responsible adults can make the environment safe with these helpful guides.
INTERNET SAFETY IN THE CURRICULUM
In the first part of the Autumn Term, our Computing Curriculum focuses on internet safety. Pupils access resources such as Goggle Legends and are encouraged to discuss their own concerns. As a school, we celebrate 'Safer Internet Day' which takes place in February of each year to raise awareness of a safer and better internet for all. This is followed up with a parent workshop.
Please find below a variety of online guides for parents , which have been created by the National College.
