E-Safety/Digital Citizenship

E-Safety/Digital Citizenship

  E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at 
  school. We also
 want to help parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can
  learn to use the internet and all
 digital media in a safe and secure way. (See our link to courses below).

  In School

  In school our Digital Citizenship and E-Safety computing lessons cover a variety of different topics. These activities are designed to
  help us not only have a greater safety awareness and a knowledge of our own digital footprint, but to also gain a better
  understanding of how we should strive to be respectful and considerate when using the many and varied opportunities the internet
  has to offer both from a learning point of view and when using social media.

  We subscribe to the National Online Safety Website and the education of e-safety in school is lead by the Government document
  Education for a Connected World and the lessons provided by Project Evolve linked through NOS. You will find links to these sites at
  the bottom of this page.

  Top Tips

  Zip it! Don't tell anyone personal information about yourself, where you go, what you look like, where you go to school. No one
  has any business to be asking about you, your friends or family. Close friends will already know this information. 

  Block it!
 
If you visit websites and you are not sure what you are looking at, close the web page, log off the computer or ask an
  adult for help.

  Flag it! 
Tell a trusted adult or your parents/carers if you see something or know of anyone asking for information or being unkind
  (cyberbullying) on the internet. You must pass on information to adults so they can help.
 

  At Home 

  As a parent, you'll know how important the internet is to children - they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. 
  It's a highly creative place of amazing opportunities.  But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you
  might worry about the risks your child can face online - such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing
  illegal or inappropriate content. 

  You can download a simple checklist here that may help you start to protect your children online and decrease the risks they
  face.  Or you can engage with your children regarding their use of the internet while at home.  Here are some conversation
  starter ideas from Childnet:

  1.   Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
  2.   Ask them about how they stay safe online. What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not
         OK to share?
  3.   Ask them if they know where to go for help, where to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the
         services they use.
  4.   Encourage them to help. Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would
         benefit from their help and support.
  5.   Think about how you use the internet as a family. What could you do to get more out of the internet together and further enjoy
         your lives online.

  We realise that engaging parents and carers in online safety has never been more important. Understanding the different risks that
  children might experience at different ages means that parents have to stay up to date in order to feel confident, supportive and
  empowered to help keep their children safe online. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help your family
  understand issues around using technology please consider participating in one of the training courses provided by the National
  Online Safety Site (image link below). With our School membership if you register as part of the Fen Ditton Primary School
  community you already have access to these resources as part of our committment to becoming a certified school.
