At Cedars Primary we recognise the important role that modern technology plays in children’s learning. As part of our school’s approach to teaching children how to use modern technology responsibly, we teach children the importance of keeping safe and to understand how to do this when using the internet and electronic devices. In Reception we use an e-safety program based around Buddy the Dog and in Key Stage 1 and 2 we follow the rising stars e-safety program. The children learn a simple mantra adopted from the Click Clever! Click Safe! campaign – ‘Zip it! Block it! Flag it!’
We encourage parents to make themselves aware of online safety issues such as cyber bullying, social networking, chat rooms, gaming, downloading music and so on. We hope that the attached links will be of interest to parents and carers so that they might develop an understanding of how they can best keep their children, and themselves, safe online. We have a comprehensive On-Line Safety Policy which is available to view below.
