We are very passionate at Flourish Federation about keeping children safe online. Every child is taught all about the dangers that exist online and how to deal with issues of e-Safety when they occur.
We teach children these skills through a variety of different lessons which can include Collective Worship times, PSHE, circle times and through Anti-Bullying Weeks and so on. Every year group is taught an e-Safety unit in Computing lessons where they are taught about important issues, such as keeping passwords secure, not sharing personal information on-line and not to communicate with strangers on social network sites or email. They are also taught about cyber-bullying and respectful behaviour online. Being in a post-lockdown era, where the country saw a rise in the number of young people going online, we find it necessary to tackle issues that arise within a class and sometimes alter our Computing curriculum to accommodate this.
There are many good links on the internet to look at if you are worried about e-Safety. Have a look at the websites below.
Below are some easy to use help guides with information about apps, games and how to stay e-safe.
