Staying Safe Online in 2021


Covid-19 update: Distance Learning:


The Child Exploitation On-Line Protection team (part of the National Crime Agency) have produced materials to support children with on-line safety at home.  They are rightly suggesting that there are now huge numbers of children accessing online sites and there are some unscrupulous people out there ready to take advantage.  For this reason, they are producing fortnightly work.  

Click here to access their resources for children and young people age 4-18.


E-Safety in the Community and Classroom

It has been a challenging 2020 and 2021 for families, school and communty and everyone has had to adapt to what is termed "The New Normal." For Parents, Carers and School Staff this has manifested itself with a massive increase in online learning as technology is used to not only support homelearning as the school faced periods of lock down and restricted access but also an increase in use of internet technologies and services in the home to support leisure time. The continuing teaching and discussion about how to stay safe online has taken on an even greater importance. Using the principles of the document "Education in a Connected World"  as a guide to the cross curricular teaching of Online Safety, the school aims to to make parents and children aware that the benefits of using online technology outstrip the dangers.


At St Mary's, we believe that Learning about e-safety is a vital life skill. Empowering children at an early age with the knowledge to safeguard themselves and their personal information is something that needs to be nurtured throughout school to see them into adult life. We have embedded e-safety into our curriculum and below you can see a selection of photographs taken from a range of e-safety lessons.
