We are safe online
It is our intent that by the end of their time at Haydonleigh Primary School, pupils are well equipped to manage their time in the digital world. From the outset of their time at Haydonleigh, pupils will be taught to respect technology with the link between the pupil acceptable use policies (AUPs) and online behaviour outside of school being made explicit. They will feel capable in responding to any possible e-safety incidences and know where to seek advice or support when needed. They will understand that when they encounter upsetting or inappropriate behaviour/material online, that it is important to report it to a trusted adult. Our pupils will understand the importance and value of the internet, but also have a strong awareness of its potential risks and harm. They will be taught about the permanence of their actions online and the impact it can have on others, as well as being conscious of their digital footprint. Pupils will also learn research skills and the importance of citing work in order to avoid plagiarism and uphold copyright regulations. Pupils will learn to be critical of information they find online in order to discern whether it is content/information that can be trusted as true, as well as understanding the reasons behind the use of false information and imagery across social media and other online platforms.
At Haydonleigh Primary School, we follow the Project Evolve scheme of e-safety lessons to ensure that the aims of our intent are met across a pupil’s time at our school. From Foundation stage to Year 6, pupils will participate in several e-safety sessions per half-term (dependent on which unit is being taught). These sessions are either discrete sessions or used as a starter before a computing lesson. There is a whole school e-safety curriculum map to ensure full coverage. We ensure that, where relevant, explicit links are made to e-safety during PSHE lessons and when technology is being used in the classroom. Our school participate in Safer Internet Week each year, as well as having talks from outside experts such as our local PSCOs or the NSPCC. Teachers carry out additional e-safety lessons when there is an additional need, with a variety of materials being used from a range of high-quality resources.
Haydonleigh Pupils will have the tools to enable them to navigate the digital world effectively. They will be able to discern what personal and private information is and understand the risks of sharing that kind of information online. Pupils will be able to identify some of the potential risks associated with being online and suggest ways they could deal with them. Pupils will understand the impact that their behaviour online can have on others and understand the importance of reporting bullying or negative behaviour. They will feel confident that reports of e-safety incidences are dealt with swiftly and thoroughly by the school.
