Safer Internet

At Oakdene, as part of our Computing and Personal Social and Health Education curriculum, 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 such as taking care 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 was on Tuesday February 8th and the theme was 'All Fun and Games? Exploring Respect and Relationships Online'. Each class focused on this as part of the week's learning and in assemblies. It also fit perfectly with our school value of 'Respect' which is always our key value in the 1st half of the spring term.
