How do we lead learning for Online Safety?

At Pool Hayes Primary we place significant importance on educating our young people about the postive and the negative aspects of using the Internet (for our online safety curriculum coverage - please see the curriculum page of this website). Our proactive Online safety co-ordinator - Mr Carter ensures that the curriculum is being taught effectively by our teachers and he also runs class workshops every term. This enables him to work with teachers to assess how much children have learnt about Online safety each year. Parent workshops are also an area where Mr Carter has developed professional relationships in order to upskill parents and safeguard children outside of school.

E-cadets (peer led IT leaders) have responsibility across every class in KS2. They make sure:

  • Assisting the class teacher with the use of any ICT equipment in the classroom (helping people with using ICT in class, ensuring equipment is collected and put away properly)
  • They take small online safety sessions with groups to help ensure all pupils know how to be safe when they use the Internet
  • They are in charge of a display board - making sure there are up to date with important information and activities linked to online safety and computing
  • E-cadets work with Mrs Emerson-Brown and Mrs Snape to deliver key stage assemblies and then complete follow up activities with individual classes across the school to make sure learning is consolidated
