Although we were in lockdown for Safer Internet day this year – teachers we still able to set children fantastic activities to ensure the children were up to date with the latest Online Safety information. Children took part in quizzes and listened to Internet Safety stories and were then able to write their own.
It is an integral part of St Andrews to ensure parents are educated on keeping their children safe online. Please use this page to support and enhance your knowledge of how to keep your children safe online.
Please find below links to leaflets from National Online Safety with regards to current technology that children use and how to keep them safe- if they are using it.
Safer Internet Day – February 2020
We were lucky enough to have a company come in to work with Year 1-6. Each class took part in a workshop which reminded them of the rules of E- Safety
Did you know ‘E-Safety’ stands for Electronic Safety – as it is not just the internet we have to be safe on but all types of technology – IPADS’s, APPs, Mobile Phones, Games etc
We focused on the idea of:
Block it, Zip it and Flag it – to remind us how to stay safe and what we must do if we feel something is not right.
At St Andrew’s we understand the importance of staying safe online- we have several books we use to help us understand different areas that may affect us at a Primary Level. The children have access to theses and they are often used as a stimulus for cross curricular projects and also just for reading for pleasure.

Internet Safety Concerns
As part of our in school Online Safety Standards- the children have access to a ‘Worry Box’ (stored on top of the laptop trolley) that they can put any concerns they may have with their safety online that will be dealt with delicately and professionally.
