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 work linked to Safer Internet Day, which includes revisits of internet safety. We constantly remind the children about keeping themselves safe on the internet in class work and assemblies, especially linking to our school values of responsibility, respect and friendship.

This year's Safer Internet Day is on Tuesday February 7th and the theme will be 'Want to Talk About It?'. Further information will be posted on this page nearer to Safer Internet Day.

Check the files on this page for useful information for parents about various aspects of online safety. We will continue to update this with new, up-to-date content, so be sure to check back on this page regularly. We have just added new information on an online communication platform called Omegle.
