Learning in school

Our children talk and learn about online safety all of the time, especially through our Computing and PSHE lessons.  We have regular visits from the police and other local agencies help us to keep up to date about what trends the children are taking part in and how we can best protect them. During February, the school takes part in the National Safer Internet Day where the children will spend time discussing relevant issues and sharing top tips for being safe online! This year's theme is "Want to talk about it?" 


In 2019 we were awarded the e-safety mark. This is an accreditation from the South West Grid for Learning. This award recognises that we provide a high standard of online safety education and awareness for all staff, children and also for parents and carers, and ensure that these users of the new technologies can be safe online.


We use the school newsletter and our social media platforms to keep parents and carers informed about what we are doing in school and how we are help the children to learn how to keep safe on the Internet. Check out some of our guides to being safe on a range of platforms.


To reduce the possibility of children accessing undesirable materials our Broadband provider (The South West Grid for Learning) operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials. All of our computers are in public view and access is supervised. Children are also taught the SMART rules for using the Internet, in order to help them to stay safe wherever they use the Internet.

Online safety Ambassadors

We have three children from each of the Year 6 classes who are our Anti-bullying Ambassadors. These children will also work closely with myself, to cover all aspects of Online Safety. The children will learn about online safety themselves and be the 'go to' support in school if children are unsure of something, feel unsafe online or if they have a question. The Ambassadors will then feed back all concerns to me. During the Safer Internet Week (Feb 2023) the children will be leading a whole school assembly and sharing some top tips.

This years Ambassadors are:
