Online Safety

At Shirehampton Primary School we understand that technology is very exciting for children and can be a fantastic learning tool. We also teach children that it is important that they know how to use it safely. Many parents are keen to support their children to become safer internet citizens, but are unsure of where to go for advice. Throughout this page you will find links to really useful websites.

We teach children the SMART rules to be better online Citizens. To find out more please visit www.childnet.com

Every year group learns about e-safety in computing lessons every term. We also have termly assemblies where the Computing Council deliver Online safety presentations to FS/KS1 and KS2.

On Thursday 10th October 2019 KS2 had an excellent Online Safety assembly by Google Interland. The aim of the assembly was to encourage children to make smart decisions, so that they can make the most of the Internet. It taught them the fundamentals of digital citizenship and safety so that they can explore the online world with confidence. We were very lucky to receive a 'Be Internet Awesome' certificate, which you will see proudly hanging in the School's foyer. To encourage your child to be internet safe at home, why not play the free Interland game- beinternetawesome
