Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

E-Safety

Primary ICT E-Safety Scheme of Work

The delivery of a robust E-safety curriculum is essential in ensuring our pupils are fully prepared for today’s technological challenges. This scheme draws upon E-Safety guidance that has been produced for schools from Becta (Signposts to Safety – Teaching e-safety at Key Stages 1 and 2)

Many of the resources used are available from the internet, however, those from CEOP ThinkUknow (Hectors World, Lee & Kim) have been downloaded onto the Teaching Resources Area of the DLG.

There are 3 distinct areas to be covered:

  1. E-Awareness – becoming aware of the online world
  2. Online Research – developing the skills needed for safe online usage
  3. Communication and Collaboration – develop an awareness of on-line communication

There are plans for each year group; Teachers with mixed age groups should choose the most appropriate unit for their class.

All classes should be taught one area per term:

  • E-Awareness- Autumn Term
  • Online Research – Spring term
  • Communication and Collaboration – Summer Term

E-Safety Guidance and Tips for Parents/Carers

Below is some e-Safety guidance and information for you as parents and for your children:

  • Did you know that you need to be at least 13 years old to create a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Kik, ooVoo, You Tube or Snapchat account? It is 16 years old for a WhatsApp account and 17 years old for Vine, Tinder and Yik.
  • The internet is a public place. You never know who might see what you are doing, so think carefully about what you post. Before you post a comment, image or video, think about its content. What may be funny to you and your friends might be upsetting or offensive to other. While you can delete photos, post, text messages and statuses they may still be visible somewhere … online content lasts forever!
    • Set profiles to ‘private’ and limit what others can see about you online.

      More e-Safety information can be found on the Webwise website (www.bbc.co.uk/webwise) has some useful information for young people about staying safe online and CEOP’s website (www.thinkuknow.co.uk) and The UK Safer Internet Centre (http://www.saferinternet.org.uk/) are useful for both parents and pupils.

Information Leaflets

  • Passwords should be complicated (include a number or a symbol) and kept private, so only you know what they are.
  • If your child is upset, worried or uncomfortable about something that has occurred online, they should talk to someone and not bottle it up.
