Welcome to our Online-Safety page!
Our Curriculum intent for Online-Safety:
Today's pupils are growing up in an increasingly complex world, living their lives seamlessly on and offline. The online world develops and changes at great speed. New opportunities, challenges and risks are appearing all the time, therefore at Holy Trinity CofE Primary School we focus on teaching the underpinning knowledge and behaviours that can help pupils to navigate the online world safely and confidently regardless of the device, platform or app. These include: How to evaluate what they see online, How to recognise techniques used for persuasion, Online behaviour, How to identify online risks and How and when to seek support. We aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge needed to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considered and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world.
Here at Holy Trinity we take our role of educating our pupils on how to be safe online very seriously!
We are the proud achievers of not one, but two online safety awards recognising our hard work and achievements in this area:
The very prestigious E-safety Mark and the SCC Internet Safety Award.
Our Online Safety Committee:
In our school we have an Online Safety Committee so that our pupils know they can go to various members of staff to seek support and guidance if something has upset them online. This way, if they can't find one of us, they will be able to find somebody else on the committee!
Our committee is made up of many stakeholders, including:
Online Safety Lead: Mrs Sarah Hudson
Head Teacher: Mrs Vikki Wall
Designated Safeguarding Lead: Miss Gemma Gold
Support Staff: Mrs Julie Scicluna
Parent committee members: Mrs Emma Wilders
Governor: Mr Abhijit Roy
Our Curriculum Content.
Here at Holy Trinity, we have ensured that we have a comprehensive whole school curriculum response in place to enable all learners to learn about and manage online risks effectively as part of providing a broad and balanced curriculum.
This curriculum has been formed using the National Online Safety scheme, the UK Council for Internet Safety (UKCIS) ‘Education for a Connected World Framework’ and DfE ‘Teaching online safety in school’ guidance.
Please see the lesson objectives on the document below:
Digital Parenting Week
From adjusting to home schooling, to your child’s return to the classroom, parents have juggled even more than normal in the last year. This Digital Parenting Week (11-15 October 2021), we are supporting you in helping promote child and parent wellbeing – both online and off.
Below you can find a Supporters Pack with some ideas for how you can inspire a focus around digital wellbeing. This includes a Digital Wellbeing Challenge, a parent engagement event, a 7-day challenge for autumn half-term and an activity sheet to spark home conversations around digital use.
Below are some weblinks that you may find useful when you are also trying to keep your children safe online:
As a school we sign up for the Vodafone Digital Parenting Magazines.
You should receive a paper copy, but here they are digitally for you to refer to at your convenience:
The Click CEOP button The Click CEOP button is an asset of the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command. The CEOP Command works to protect children from the harm of sexual abuse and exploitation both online and offline. The button has been developed to offer children, young people, parents/carers and professionals working with these groups with a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP.
Reporting to CEOP:
CEOP operates a 24/7 service for the receipt of reports. Reports can be made to CEOP by a young person or on their behalf by a parent/carer or professional working with these groups. Children under 11 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult that they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help in reporting this either to CEOP or local police. All reports to CEOP are treated as reports of crime and as such anonymous reports cannot be accepted.
Below you can find many guides, checklists and information booklets on various apps, games and websites popular amongst children. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with any that are relevant to your child.
If there is something in particular that you cannot see a guide for, please do let us know so that we can source one for you.
On each sub-page below, you can find age appropriate resources to help the children to continue their learning of how to be safe online.
