:: Safeguarding in the digital world: online safety in the primary school ::
Children today are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline and this presents many positive and exciting opportunities but also challenges and risks. Keeping pupils safe online and teaching them about the appropriate and responsible use of the internet is an essential part of a school’s safeguarding role. This responsibility is highlighted in the revised DfE document ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education.’ Online safety will be a key component in the new relationships and health education curriculum. In an increasingly digital world, it is important that children have the skills, knowledge and understanding to interact fully in the online world. They must have the ability and understanding to do so in a safe way, knowing when they may be at risk and knowing what to do if anything goes wrong. Schools also need to help pupils understand the benefits of a healthy and balanced digital diet to promote a positive sense of health and wellbeing. This course looks at what schools need to do to in order to make online safety a priority across all areas of school life and meet the new relationships and health education curriculum outcomes.
