Online Safety at Sellindge Primary School
Children have more access than ever before, at school and at home, to many types of internet communication. It might be researching a topic for homework, using Cbeebies on the computer, using an app on an I-pad or playing computer games with friends through a X-Box or Wii. Online safety involves making sure that our children know the advantages and disadvantages of using this technology and that they become safe, respectful and responsible users of it. We are encouraging our pupils to become Super Digital Citizens!
At Sellindge children are taught about online safety through discrete Computing sessions and PSHE activities. However, due to its all encompassing nature, it is also an area that we continually refer to and encourage children to think about. As a staff we promote it throughout the school.
