E-safety

E-safety or online safety as it also referred to is the need to educate children and young people about the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology. In an ever increasing technological world, it is becoming more of an important issues and here at Westbrook Lane we place great importance on this.

Our curriculum covers online safety across the school reflecting how children’s interests and use of technology changes as they grow older. 

As technologies continue to develop and children’s online behaviour changes it can often be hard for parents to keep up. Parent workshops regarding internet safety are held on a regular basis. Please see below for the presentation from our most recent workshop. A comprehensive list of resources for you to view can be found further down this page.

If you would like any further information regarding e-safety, then please contact Mr Hooson.

In addition to our workshop information posted above, we would like to recommend the following useful e-safety websites for children and parents.There are some fantastic resources available to support you and your children in learning how to be safe online.   The PDF file below will provide you with a series of links for some age appropriate E-safety resources that we use in school. Should you choose to use them with your children, it is advisable to read or watch any of the resources first so you can consider the types of question your child/children may ask.

This series follows the adventures of Alfie, Ellie and Sam as they form a band and enter their school’s Battle of the Bands contest, taking on the mean but ‘cool’ Popcorn Wizards as they go. The three friends learn that while the internet can help them in pursuit of their goal, they need to use it wisely and safely and that ultimately, doing your best, including others and nurturing genuine friendship is much more important than how popular you are.
