Saint Benedict’s considers E-Safety to be a fundamental aspect of educating young people in modern Britain. We have E-Safety at the centre of safeguarding and seek to educate the children in both the positive aspects and risks associated with the online world of today.
Pupils will be taught about online safety as part of the curriculum. The academy uses the Education for a Connected World framework to support the delivery of E-Safety within the pastoral curriculum, and is supported across other subject areas such as Computer Science with regular topical discussion and revisiting of knowledge and understanding of the online world.
Topics covered are age appropriate, and support our pupils in navigating the online world in a safe and secure environment.
1. Self-image and Identity
2. Online relationships
3. Online reputation
4. Online bullying
5. Managing online information
6. Health, well-being and lifestyle
7. Privacy and security
8. Copyright and ownership
As a school we promote the positive aspects of social media and support the children in understanding the value in these platforms. We would like to remind parents that there are age restrictions for applications which can be seen below. We strongly advise that parents adhere to these age restrictions for the safety and well being of their children. There is a wealth of advice available to parents on security measures in access to these sites at The National Online Safety website and the NSPCC Net-Aware website
