ESAFETY

I.T -1_1 Pad(4).jpg

The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role and so, providing a broad and balanced e-safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively. (Childnet international).

At Lanesfield, we are actively promoting e-safety and it’s importance in this rapidly-changing time of technological growth. We have introduced a regular e-safety assembly on one Thursday of each half-term to promote aspects of the subject. The electronic world brings many wonderful advantages for the acquisition of knowledge, but also many dangers, some of which are not always apparent. Please find below links to sites which we think are very important to look at both as parents and children. Take some time to explore them and share with your children the parts that you think are most relevant to you and them.

  Information for Parents

Technology and the Internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.

Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly. Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour isn’t sensible or respectful. Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.
