Online Safety @ St Catherine's

"Pupils understand how to keep themselves safe and can talk about this confidently, including when using the internet." Ofsted Dec 2018

At St Catherine's, we believe that learning about Online Safety is a vital life skill. Empowering children at an early age with the knowledge to safeguard themselves and their personal information is something that needs to be nurtured throughout school to see them into adult life.

The children learn all about keeping themselves safe online through our Online Safety units in each year group as part of our Computing Curriculum. These are taught every term however each Computing lesson begins with an Online Safety Reminder to ensure we are continuously having conversations about how to stay safe online. 

All children understand and have signed the school's acceptable use policy and these are displayed in every classroom.

We also recognise the importance of keeping parents/carers up-to-date with the latest apps and Online Safety concerns. We send out regular reminders to parents about having important conversations at home regarding Online Safety.

St Catherine's Online Safety Prayer

Let us switch on...

Our devices,

Which art connected,

Hallowed be wi-fi.

Thy screens be clean,

Thy words not be mean,

Let us not hide away in our bedrooms.

Give us today,

Pop-ups x'ed away.

Teach us not to type what we wouldn't say,

and remember to screen shot right away.

Lead us not to bad websites,

And deliver us from strangers.

For thine is the power,

Of computer safety

Forever and ever

Online.

Online Safety Week

Each year, there is a week dedicated to celebrating all that the children have learnt about Online Safety.

This takes place every February coinciding with Safer Internet Day.

Parents/carers are invited to a Cyber Cafe to look at what the children have been learning about. Also they are given the opportunity to take part in some Online Safety learning with their children and collect fact sheets and guides for popular apps. 

Anti-Cyberbullying Day

As part of Anti-Bullying Week (in November), we also celebrate Anti-Cyberbullying Day. The children learn about what cyberbullying is and how to STOP, SPEAK & SUPPORT!
