Computing and E-Safety

Computing and E-Safety

At Shoscombe Church School we use the Internet on a regular basis as part of our learning. To be able to deal with the rewards and risks associated with this, we teach E-Safety as part of our ICT and PSHE curriculum.

Our Computing curriculum ensures that we have regular activities based around E-safety, reminding us how we are responsible to keep ourselves safe. Information about upcoming E-Safety open evenings will follow on this site and in the Newsletter. Below you can find links to online E-Safety resources. Click on them to find out more.

Year 1 and 2: Hector’s World

Year 3 and 4: Captain Kara’s SMART Adventures

Year 5 and 6: Cyber Cafe

ProfileWatch – A useful site to check how secure your Facebook profile is (children under 13 should not have a facebook account – this has been included predominantly for adults working in and with Shoscombe Church School).

Search Engines

There are obvious traps with search engines like Google and Bing. Unless you have a third party filter, images and text that are not appropriate to you child may well appear. There are a couple of solutions to this problem. In school, the children use a child safe search engine. At home you could use google-kids.com.

To keep using Google, but have some control, watch this video link. This will show you how you can adjust your safety search settings.

Please feel free to come in if you have any questions or more information. Your contact for E-Safety is Mrs Pudsey in Sycamore Class.
