Keeping Children safe Online:
The internet is a fantastic place overflowing with knowledge, games and communities of people, and, just like pupils across the country, the pupils here at St John’s spent time using the internet within school and at home. This is why it is important that our pupils learn how to be safe when browsing online and becoming members of online communities.
In school, we have regular ‘online-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. These are delivered in class and in during ICT lessons, on a level that pupils will understand.
At home, children sometimes have unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Through our Online-Safety lessons, pupils are made aware of the procedures they need to follow if they experience anything inappropriate.
