It is almost impossible to imagine life without the internet. So many everyday tasks and activities involve hooking up to the world wide web. Sometimes, we don't even realise we are connected.
E-Safety is an increasingly important part of the school curriculum. Although it is described as part of the Computing strand of the National Curriculum, we see learning about E-Safety as a crucial part of the PSHE curriculum, and a crucial lifeskill.
E-Safety is taught in lessons and in whole school assemblies. We teach children how to keep themselves safe when they are online. We recognise that you do not have to be using a computer to be hooked up to the world wide web. Phones, games, and, increasingly, wearable devices are transmitting and receiving data. We want children to be able to make the most of the technology available without compromising their safety.
