Zip It, Block It, Flag It!
Using electronic devices, such as smart-phones, i-Pads and games consoles, is now a part of everyday life. For this reason, it is absolutely vital that our pupils know how to keep themselves safe when they are online. Learning about e-safety is an integral part of our Computing curriculum, but also features as part of the teaching of PSHCE, as well as more generally in school life.
At Beddington Park Primary School, we teach our pupils the Three Golden Rules of e-safety:
Please ask our children about the Three Golden Rules of e-safety and they will be happy to show you the actions, and explain to you about what they mean in practice.
Last academic year, the school held two e-safety assemblies. Following this, we ran a competition asking the pupils to design their own e-safety posters. We were thrilled with the response, and to see how much the children understood about e-safety. Some of the prize-winning examples are shown here:
Do you ever feel like your children know more about electronic devices than you? It is a fact that many of our pupils are more experienced in using electronic devices than their parents. At Beddington Park Primary School, we are very fortunate that our Executive Headteacher, Mr Cooke, is a trained CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) ambassador. This means that he is qualified in delivering e-safety training to other members of staff, as well as to parents. E-safety training for parents and carers takes place regularly throughout the year. Please check our calendar for future dates and events.
