It is important in the ever-advancing world of technology that children understand how to become responsible and safe digital citizens.

In school, all year groups take part in a range of e-safety topics, including cyber-bullying, building a positive online reputation and knowing how being online can affect our health, both physically and mentally. All our work in computing is underpinned by the idea of making the children learn how to be respectful and safe citizens of the digital world.

At Hempland Primary, we also use the National Online Safety Programme. This contains a wide range of guides and short videos to support parents and carers in ensuring that their children are safe when using devices at home or in school. The site can be accessed through this link. Furthermore, an app is available to download from the Google Play store or the Apple App store.
