As part of our on-going IT and Digital Education at High Cross we teach the children about the importance of eSafety. This aspect of their learning focuses on the Digital Competence Framework Strand - Digital Citizenship, by promoting the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology.
This is taught at the appropriate level right across the school.
We have fortnightly assemblies for KS2 - reinforcing the safe use of online devices and where to go for help.
Our Police Liason Office (PLO) PC Thomas also carries out age appropriate lessons across the school.
We have Digital Leaders from Reception to Year 6 who have on-going training to update them on current apps and programmes to support other learners. They also promote the safe and responsible use of technology in our lessons.
We participated in Safer Internet Day 2020 and held a Digital Citizenship week in school. These days help us to continue raising the profile of eSafety.
