Knockmore Primary School


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. 

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.

Safer Schools NI App

This year we are introducing the Safer Schools NI App, provided by the Department of Education and INEQE Safeguarding Group. 92% of children in Northern Ireland use video sharing platforms, with 53% using social media and 65% accessing messaging apps. If your child hasn’t already been using these platforms, they soon will be! Therefore, it's more important than ever to ensure your child is aware of how to keep safe online.
