NSPCC Internet Safety
The NSPCC has resources on its website that can help parents/carers and professionals keep up-to-date with the latest child safety online news and lots of other information about using the Internet responsibly.
On Thursday 30th June 2022, the children in Year 5 and 6 will attend workshops in school to help them understand the importance of online safety. These have been organised by Gemma Rose the school coordinator for Cumbria.
At Bridekirk Dovenby School we use a variety of materials to deliver the strands of Internet Safety to our children. More recently, we have been looking into the Project EVOLVE resources where each of the 330 statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World” are covered with perspectives; research; activities; outcomes; supporting resources and professional development materials.
The vibrant new content has been written by a team of experts at the UK Safer Internet Centre. It is up to date; relevant and engaging and moves online life education into the third decade of the 21st century.
Be Internet Legends
We are also looking at Internet Legends to help support children to make smart decisions so they can make the most of the internet. Be Internet Legends empowers younger children to use the web safely and wisely, so they can be confident explorers of the online world.
