E-Safety

PLEASE TAKE TIME TO EXPLORE THIS SITE 

Our computing vision at Whitby Heath Primary School is to keep our pupils safe online. We provide them with the knowledge and skills to do so, promoting safe messages throughout the curriculum. As computing is an increasing part of life today, it is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject, to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world whilst having high aspirations. We aim to do this by encouraging our pupils become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies. Not only do we encourage digital literacy, we also want to develop our pupil’s creativity, resilience, problem solving and critical thinking skills. The use of ICT will enhance and extend children’s learning across the whole curriculum. We aim to expose children to the educational developments in computing and provide them with the opportunities to access the most effective and emerging technologies. This will allow our pupils to embrace and utilise new technologies in a socially responsible and safe way.

 

Safer Internet Day 2022 research findings revealed | Childnet

On Tuesday 8th February 2022, we have taken part in 'Safer internet day' which is celebrated globally. Every Year, there is a different topic focused around e-safety and this year's theme is 'All fun and Games?' We want to celebrate young people’s role in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers. In school we have been looking at how we interreact with others online and had lots of discussions about how to talk online and how to deal with situations.
Attached at the bottom of this page is a top 10 tips for respect online, it's a great poster to start the conversation at home about how we can support our young people's positive behaviours online.

 

Please see attached as December 2021 documents, a review of APPS being used by children and young people locally. This review has been passed to schools by PC Sarah Baliff for Safer Schools and Young Peolpe Partnership Cheshire
