Online safety is an essential part of keeping children safe at St Luke’s Primary School. Within school, we have extensive security measures in place to safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. All online safety incidents are recorded and acted upon by our school’s safeguarding team and we welcome the support from parents to ensure messages are consistent. All parents have free access to the National Online Safety website and app. This platform provides a range of resources that empowers parents by increasing knowledge and giving up-to-date information to the ever-changing online risks.
Online safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to navigate the internet safely and how to communicate and behave appropriately when online. A key question we regularly ask our upper KS2 children to help them to self-reflect is ‘Are you proud of your online behaviour?’. This creates an open dialogue between adults and children through a shared understanding of safe internet use.
