Stay Safe Online
We believe it is vital to show, even our youngest children, how to stay safe online so therefore we incorporate resources devised by the ‘Think u Know’ education programme within our teaching.
ThinkUknow Education Programme:-
The ThinkUknow education programme being delivered in our school is a resource developed by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) to help children learn about the risks they may encounter whist using the internet and other interactive technology devices. It focusses on a number of themes to deliver three key messages;
- How to have fun online
- How to stay safe and in control online
- How to report a problem
Children and young people will be taught how to;
- Recognise and manage potential risks associated with their online activities
- Behave responsibly online
- Judge what kind of online relationships are acceptable and unacceptable
- How to stay in control and report a problem.
We have recently been guided to share information to you about this program - please follow THIS LINK to gain greater understanding of how this game is used by children and adults.
