At Whitwell Primary School we believe that educating our children about being safe on-line is very important. As part of our Computing curriculum all children from Foundation Stage to Year Six follow our Online Safety Scheme of Work focusing on identifying some of the risks about being on-line and how to keep themselves safe.
In school we have clear rules about using the internet and these are displayed in every classroom. This poster is displayed in our classrooms . The rules are regularly discussed with the children by their class teachers.
Parents of pupils are asked to sign ICT Acceptable Use Policy for Pupils permission slip on behalf of their children to use the internet and have work published on the school website. KS2 pupils also sign and agree to follow the rules too.
