At Kennington Primary School, we take all aspects of Safe Guarding extremely seriously especially Online-Safety.
There is no getting away from that fact that technology is now part of our everyday lives. Whether it be at work, school or in the home the way we interact with technology and the way it interacts with us has changed rapidly over the last 20 years and will inevitably continue to do so. At Kennington Primary School, we have adopted many new technologies as we have seen the potential benefits they have in improving the outcomes for our children. We want to equip them with the basic skills needed for life in the 21st century. We understand that we have a responsibility to teach children about all aspects of technology including those ones which may make them vulnerable if used inappropriately. We also have a duty to our staff to provide them with a framework which allows them to remain safe whilst using new technologies with our young people.
Below you will find our Online-Safety Policy and also a range of other resources you may find of use when discussing online-safety with your children.
Think U Know - A Guide to internet safety and safe surfing for young people https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk
Parent Info - In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient. https://www.parentinfo.org
