educating children about the potential risks

Our pupils are growing up and learning in a world where technology and the internet are becoming increasingly prominent. We know that technology can be a wonderful tool for enhancing learning and communicating with others, but we are also aware of the need to educate children about the potential risks around using computers and the Internet. Our curriculum and polices are in place to ensure children gain a greater understanding about technology and how to keep themselves safe when operating online.

At Ulceby St Nicholas, our Computing curriculum is underpinned by the principles of e-Safety. We regularly discuss how to keep ourselves safe online (particularly prior to school holidays when pupils’ internet use is likely to increase), teach discrete E-safety sessions and take part in events such as Safer Internet Day.
