Online Safety

Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master - Christian Lous Lange


The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect - opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?

How do we teach pupils at St. Joseph's  about staying safe online?

Each year, starting from Reception class, pupils will learn about how to keep themselves safe in a variety of ways online.

Our Reception class pupils are introduced to online safety through the use of Hector's World™
Pupils in Key Stage 1 and 2  learn about online safety through the Twinkl scheme of work to ensure that all areas are covered.

Overview of Online Safety Units taught (Reception - Year 6)

This work is complemented in KS2 through our Google 'Internet Legends' online adventures that teach the key lessons of internet safety through four fun, challenging games.
