Yerbury Primary School believes that online safety is an integral part of safeguarding and requires a whole school, cross-curricular approach.
The school has established a carefully sequenced curriculum for online safety that builds on what pupils have already learned and identifies subject content that is appropriate for their stage of development.
Online safety lessons are woven into the school’s computing curriculum, with a discrete e-safety lesson taught each half term, and into the PSHE curriculum. In addition, children in years 3-6 are taught digital resilience lessons, which gives them the skills to look after their mental and emotional wellbeing in a digital world. As well as these discrete lessons, staff look to identify opportunities to thread online safety through all school activities.
Any issues and concerns with online safety are dealt with by following the school’s safeguarding and child protection procedures.
