We know what an amazing tool the internet can be. It allows our children to learn, create, play and interact â a touch of a keypad opens up a world of exciting possibilities.
At Gallions we are keen that our children become confident users of the internet and have the up-to-date resources and equipment that enable the internet to really enhance their learning.
However, we also recognise that with the world of digital technology changing all the time, and at pace, it is more important than ever that we work in partnership with families to keep our children safe both inside and outside of school.
As part of our PSHCE curriculum we teach children about online safety, and an awareness of potential dangers such as privacy, cyberbullying, and the appropriate use of social media. In addition to this, we use every opportunity in the wider curriculum and our work with families to reinforce how children can enjoy the internet safely and maximise the benefit of this amazing tool.
For more information about online safety and how parents/carers can protect their children from potential dangers in the home, please do come and speak to us. Alternatively you can find advice and guidance via the following websites:
