Turquoise Class E-Safety SMART rules!

As part of the 2017 Safer Internet Day, Turquoise Class let everyone know the importance of SMART rules and what they are. Watch and learn how to safely surf the net!

The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of and this is changing continually.

We are committed to educating your children about the risks of going online and what your children can do to protect themselves. As part of this commitment, we committed to work towards an e-safety accreditation through the '360 degree E-Safety' scheme over three years. We are now in our third year and we are hoping to pass the coveted accreditation in 2016. 



2015 - 2016 online safety educational programme

The children have a very good understanding of online safety and what to do if they feel uncertain when using different technologies. In addition to implement new security policies and inviting an external company to audit the strengths and areas for development, this year's priorities are:


  1. Inviting the community and parents to an online safety and new technologies workshop.
  2. Creating opportunities for the children to share their knowledge of 'new' media and their dangers with adults.
  3. Widening the E-safety Committee by extending the invitation to other groups e.g. parents and the School Council.
  4. Producing a package of evidence for the 360 Degree E-Safety Mark accreditation.
  5. Completing questionnaires for pupils, staff, parents and Governors.

Safer Internet Day 2016 - 9th February 

This year's Safer Internet Day's theme is, 'play your part for a better internet' and we will be particularly focusing on cyber-bulling. This year, the children have been tasked with sharing their learning in assembly on the 9th February using a resource from the computing curriculum. We are excited to see what they come up with!
