Online - Safety at Downsview
Technology is a fast moving and ever-changing industry. At Downsview Primary School, we strive to offer the latest devices and equipment to specifically enhance our children’s computing skills as well as aid their education throughout the curriculum.
We use laptops, tablet devices, word-pads, interactive touchscreens and games consoles to learn and develop new and existing skills. Our resources have greatly improved levels of engagement and understanding.
However, we are acutely aware that our pupils need to learn new skills in a safe environment.
At Downsview Primary School, the safety of our pupils when online is really important. We plan and deliver regular e-safety assemblies and classroom lessons to ensure that our children know how to be safe and responsible when using the internet. Children are taught to report any concerns to an adult and use the following ‘motto’ to stay safe online:
- ZIP IT– Don’t give out personal information
- BLOCK IT– Only open trusted emails and attachments…if in doubt, delete it!
- FLAG IT– Tell someone!
