Technology is developing at a speed not previously experienced, meaning that online safety is now an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world. The safety of your child online is something we take very seriously in school and is part of our computing curriculum. We appreciate that it is an area that some parents find confusing and difficult to keep up with. Therefore, we want to help our 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.
We have a recently introduced a team of Digital Leaders, who have been trained by the Childnet Digital Leaders Programme. This aims to inspire young people to encourage others to use technology in a positive way in the school or local community. The Digital Leaders are interested in technology, trust worthy and classroom role models and have a range of responsibilities, including: delivering assemblies, fundraising for new equipment and supporting peers in lessons.
Parent Info provides support and advice to parents, with contributions from the leading experts and organisations in matters related to young people and families in a digital world.
