E-safety/Online Safety

E-safety/Online Safety Information. Keeping your child safe online.

Updated Feb 2021

At South End Infant School we learn how to be Cyber Smart; to use online platforms safely and stay safe in the online world.  Our most recent Online Safety learning has been about our School Rules, which our Cyber Crew and School Council team devised.  

This term December 2020, we talked about keeping our personal information safe, online videos and who to talk to if we see something we do not like.  We know how to report our concerns or worries.  Take a look at our rules (scroll down) and watch the first Jessie and Friends video from Thinkuknow.co.uk

Areas of Online Safety

At South End Infant school we teach E-safety/Online Safety involving themes such as  Cyberbullying, Netiquette, Online Videos, Messaging, Stranger Awareness, Online Gaming (PEGI) and Grooming.  We use CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) guidelines. We educate children about staying safe and the dangers they may face. We do this through stories, activities, assemblies, PSHE lessons, songs and videos.  We do it through age appropriate means; promoting safety skills and knowledge that can be applied by pupils as they grow up in the online world.

We discuss the power and pitfalls of Social Media sites through our Computing Curriculum resources and Purple Mash.

We want the children at South End Infant School to be responsible internet users, the online world is very important to them. However, we also know the importance of adult monitoring and we watch user activity very closely.

Some of the gaming guides below are for older children, however we have included them as you may have older children and they will be a good reference for future gaming.  All games have a PEGI rating (age rating).
