At Lowedges Junior Academy we take Digital Safety very seriously. Due to technology developing and the abilities of children being able to access the Internet more easily, we ensure that E-safety is integrated into all areas of Computing being taught within school, so that children can see the real life dangers involved with using digital devices. Our scheme of work can be downloaded here.
In addition, we take part in "Online Safety Week" each February. During this week, children have the opportunity to access a range of activities that explore a wide range of issues. They learn how to respond to any online safety issues that they may come across. The children are involved in discussing and debating Internet usage at home and how to be more responsible when using digital devices.
Our staff work to ensure our pupils understand Internet safety and how to be responsible Internet users.
As parents / carers you can also support your children around these issues.
