Internet Safety @ Swimbridge

E-Safety is taught across the school to all pupils at an age appropriate level. As they develop their knowledge of the exciting online world they look at potential risks and learn strategies to keep themselves safe.

Topics covered include:

  • keeping personal information private

  • how to get help and support

  • using technology safely

  • being respectful online (cyber bullying)

  • being responsible online (digital footprint)

  • how to recognise acceptable and unacceptable online behaviour

  • how to report incidents

Our Internet Safety Code was developed from pupil's ideas and agreed by the school council to give children ownership. All children learn about the code and sign a copy which is displayed in their classrooms and referred to regularly. 

Throughout the year we also work with parents to empower them with the knowledge to support their children at home. We achieve this through workshops, questionnaires and information leaflets.
