Keeping Children Safe Online

Online safety is taught once a half term in every year group.  We use the Education for a Connected World framework to structure this part of our curriculum.  In addition to this, we participate in Safer Internet Day each year.  Discussions around online safety issues are also woven into most computing lessons (for example, when using an app, there may be a discussion about how to create a safe username and password).
