Information for Parents
Technology and the Internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.
Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly. Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour isn’t sensible or respectful. Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.
At Wodensfield, our online safety group is made up of digital ambassadors from different classes across the school. We aim to:
Speak to children and staff with different skills, experiences and opinions.
Make sure online safety is being taught to everyone fairly, no matter their abilities.
Highlight any gaps or weak areas in the curriculum.
Plan for yearly events such as Anti-Bullying Week or Safer Internet Day.
Build resilience within the school.
Monitor and review policies, giving a guide for what staff, parents and children should and shouldn’t do.
Monitor incidents and ensure that they have been dealt with in accordance with school policy.
Engage the school community - working together to benefit all.
