Keeping Safe Online

At Beech Green, we place a strong emphasis on teaching children to be responsible Digital Citizens.  This involves following a curriculum taken from the Department for Education’s “Education for a Connected World” document, which encompasses 8 strands. These are:

Self-image and identify

Online relationships

Online reputation

Online bullying

Managing online information

Health, wellbeing and lifestyle

Privacy and security

Copyright and ownership.

Digital citizenship is taught through the Computing curriculum, but also in other subjects, such as PSHE.  It is also taught discretely through the “In The Net” drama production in Year 4, and through sessions taught by our local SchoolBeat officer in Year 6.

We also recognise that parents play a vital role in keeping children safe online, and in helping them to develop responsible online behaviours.  We work closely with Gloucestershire Constabulary’s Cyber Protect, Prevent and Prepare Officer to deliver information sessions to parents.

For more information about keeping your child safe online at home, The National College has a wealth of information posters available here.  Alternatively, visit our pages linked below for some of the most relevant posters.
