Safer Internet

In Oakdene, as part of our Computing curriculum and Personal Social and Health Education, we teach our pupils how to stay safe whilst using the internet. All classes have a focus on 'My Online Life' in the first half of the Autumn term, where we deliver content linked to staying safe online and taking your with your online footprint, right up to work on copyright laws. In the spring term, there is a follow-up unit on digital literacy which includes revisits of internet safety. We constantly remind the children about keeping themselves safe on the internet in class work and assemblies.

This year's Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday February 9th and the theme is 'An Internet We Trust: Exploring Reliability in the Online World'. With more and more online content nowadays, it is vital that children can separate fact from opinion, and not take everything we read online as absolute truth. Each class is focusing on this as part of this week's learning and as part of their class assembly this week.
