Online Safety

At Bishop Perrin CE Primary School we aim to embed online safety across the curriculum.

Online safety is taught as part of our computing curriculum as well as being covered within our PSHE lessons. We strive to develop the children’s understanding of the potential dangers as well as the positive aspect of using devices with online functions. The children are taught how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly as well as learning how to seek help or report concerns that they may have when using the internet. All the children at Bishop Perrin School sign up to an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which is appropriate for their age. They are expected to follow the guidelines whenever they are online within school, and hopefully adopt the same behaviours when using the internet at home. Please see below the online safety schemes of work for each year group.

Acceptable Use Policies for Bishop Perrin Pupils

All the children at Bishop Perrin School are taught about the appropriate use of technology and the internet for when they at school and home. This guidance is shared with them in our Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) for Key Stage 1 and for Key Stage 2 and they are all asked to sign the AUP to say that they will abide by them.

Acceptable Use Policy for Parents

We are keen to support parents by providing as much information about online safety as possible. This might include offer parent workshops or sending out online safety advice and communications. We would encourage you to explore the links below which provide excellent information and tips to help you support your child and family with online safety at home.

With some families now accessing online tutors to help and support their child with their learning at home, it is worth having a look at this poster with sound guidance and advice about engaging with an online tutor: Online Tutors – Keeping children Safe

You might want to use the Digital Family Agreement template to draw up your own family agreement on the use of technology at home so that everyone has a clear understanding of its use.
