E-safety and Cyber Bullying
During their D.A.R.E. lesson Year 6 redressed the rules for E-safety. They discussed the minimum age of 13 for holding a Facebook account and ’friends’ collecting ’friends’; a lot of the friends are part of gangs that just collect data and information that can be used for criminal purposes. By teaching our children about the dangers we hope to enable them to make informed, responsible choices.
In today's ever changing technological world it is not only essential that we provide our children with the skills and knowledge to ensure they keep themselves safe on the internet, but also to be responsible users of new and emerging technologies.
The Internet can be a wonderful resource that really enhances both teaching and learning, and we want to encourage and empower our children to embrace new technologies in a safe, responsible and purposeful way. At Langold Dyscarr Community School we place a great importance on children learning e-Safety throughout school.
Every class has a clear set of e-Safety rules that is consistent across the school which are discussed regularly with the children. We also encourage children to apply these rules when they use the Internet at home, and share them with parents and carers. This set of rules help to support the children to make appropriate choices when using new technologies wherever they are.
By educating our children effectively about e-Safety, we are preparing them to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens in an ever changing world.
Please print a copy of our e-Safety rules for use at home and discuss them with your child. Display them by your computer as a reminder to all who use the Internet.
