Computing & Online Safety
In our ever changing world, it is important to recognise how Online Safety is becoming a priority for us all. Whilst the internet is an informative and amazing resource opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities for children to play, learn, create and connect we need to ensure we keep track of what they’re doing and make sure they’re staying safe?
At hendon Brook School, our online safety education is implemented to ensure all pupils are kept safe when working online. We teach Online Safety directly and as an ongoing thread throughout the curriculum. All children sign an ICT agreement in class upon starting school. E safety weeks are held alongside National events and children are regularly reminded of online safety rules.
