Keeping our children safe in a digital age, is something that we take very seriously at Knockmore Primary School. We teach all year groups progressively about E-safety in order to equip them with all of the knowledge and skills that they will need.
To find out more about what you can do as parents/carers/grandparents, visit the ThinkUKnow website for support materials and advice. It is run by the Child Exploitation Online Protection (CEOP) Command of the National Crime Agency. CEOP provide regular updates free of charge.
E-safety is something that Knockmore Primary School takes very seriously, in order to ready our children for their current and future needs. It is embedded within both the PDMU curriculum, as well as within our ICT curriculum. In addition to this, E-safety is a regular part of the learning experience. In the digital age, IT is an essential learning resource for all subjects. Therefore, whenever IT is used, the common language and routines of being safe online is part of children's understanding of staying safe.
IMPORTANT PLEASE TAKE A LOOK
For some time now the Safeguarding Board for NI (SBNI) supported by all departments, has been developing an e-safety strategy for Children and Young People. The DRAFT strategy is currently open for consultation, and we want to encourage responses from school staff, children, parents/carers. All the documents are available by following the link below. Please take a look and complete the survey before the 29th April 2019 as the pupil support team would like your feedback.
