Thursday 9th December 2021 - Be Internet Legends Day!
Here is a letter providing information and some resources you could explore and use with your child at home when discussing how to stay safe online.
We recognise that our children access the internet through a wide of devices and we want to encourage our children to use the world wide web successfully and safely. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers and unsuitable material. On this page, there is lots of information, tips, advice, guides, web links and resources for you to use, as parents and carers, to support your child(ren) and help keep your family safe online. If you'd like any further support, please get in touch with Miss Winkley, Computing Coordinator, or one of our designated safeguarding staff members.
Our Online Safety Policy
Leaflet for Parents/Carers from Leeds Prevent Team
In School, as part of our computing curriculum, we teach Online Safety following the 'Be Internet Legends' Scheme in KS2 and a mix of this and other relevant resources in KS1 & EYFS.
Be Internet Legends is a very relevant scheme of learning devised by Google and it aims to ensure that children make the most of the internet and make smart decisions. It empowers children to use the web safely and wisely, so they can be confident explorers of the online world.
As part of this, they have created an online game 'Interland' which children can play to continually consolidate their understanding of how to remain safe online. A link to this has been posted below.
So that parents and carers are able to be involved in supporting their child(ren) to remain safe online, Be Internet Legends have created a Code for Parents. This aims to encourage the entire family to follow the Legends Code together at home.
Split into Be Internet Legend's 5 principles 'Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind, Brave' we have devised a child-friendly version of the Legends code and this is a promise/pledge which we use in school. This is below for you to adapt and implement at home if you wish.
