Welcome to Gledhow's e-safety page

At Gledhow we appreciate how useful the Internet can be for finding information and communicating. However, we understand that there are many potential on-line dangers. At school we have clear guidlines for the use of the Internet to protect our children to keep them safe. As a parent, if you need help and advice, then spend time looking at the websites and information below. If you need any other help, please don't hesitate to come into school. For any concerns about online safety please contact Mr Wood or Mrs Burrough, Leanring Mentors.

As a parent you will know how important the internet is to children - they use it to expand their learning, socialise with friends and express themselves. The internet is full of opportunities, however vast array of technology available to children can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online - such as cyber bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.

Below are some ideas on how to approach internet safety with your child:

  • Ask your child who they would go to if they feel worried, sad or scared about a concern regarding the internet. 
  • Ask them to give you tips on staying safe online. What behaviour is acceptable? What content should and shouldn't be shared?
  • Discuss which websites your child likes to visit and what they enjoy doing on the site.

Here you will find useful resources to support your child at home with internet safety.

E-safety at Gledhow

E-Safety is a paramount feature of the computing curriculum at Gledhow Primary School. We use the first half-term of each academic year to recap prior learning and then approach new online safety matters. Our E-Safety planning is systematically structured to recap prior learning and then educate children on a range of online safety topics. Throughout their time at Gledhow, children will advance through CEOP to gain a selection of E-Safety badges. Through using CEOP, children will become accustomed to the acronym ‘TAG’, meaning ‘Tell a Grown-up’ when unsure about anything they encounter online.

In KS1, our E-Safety curriculum educates children on watching videos safely and the actions to take when uncertain. Alongside CEOP, Key Stage 2 children are educated on being SMART online. This entails lessons on being safe, meeting up, accepting, using reliable sources, and telling a grown up when concerned.  Further topics approached in Key Stage 2 include researching how our digital footprint can impact us, online gaming safety, sharing pictures and being a positive bystander.

Children will also become familiarised with E-Safety books that approach online safety problems, allowing opportunity to discuss how online concerns can be overcome. The books used in KS1 are part of a collection, meaning children can familiarise and relate themselves with characters. Additionally, all year groups are provided with a range of E-books to support classroom learning and instil critical online thinking.

Pupils showcase their learning by displaying internet safety posters in our computing suite, creating internet safety fortune tellers or scenario dice.

Each year we promote Safer Internet Day by delivering assemblies on navigating games and communicating online safely. Teachers also take part in reading an age appropriate E-Safety non-fiction book to their class.

Safer Internet Day will take place on the 7th February 2023.
