Online Safety Curriculum
Children learn about online safety through our computing curriculum which can be found under the ‘Computing’ tab in the curriculum section of this website.
We supplement this with further online safety lessons for pupils delivered by our Pastoral Lead and external specialists.
We teach children the SMART rules to help them keep safe online.

In Year 1, our pupils learn about personal information, what people do online and the basics of keeping themselves safe. We use the Thinkuknow ‘Hector and Friends’ resources to support this.

In year 2, our pupils learn the SMART rules in more detail. We use Childnet’s ‘Kara, Winston and the SMART Crew’ resources to support this. The children cover the following themes:
- What should you accept?
- What is reliable?
- What should you keep safe?
- Who should you tell?
- Be careful when meeting up.

In Year 3, our pupils recap the SMART rules and also learn more about cyber-bullying and the importance of being kind online.
In year 4, our pupils explore the use of social media in more detail and how to keep themselves safe in this area.
Year 5 and 6
In Years 5 and 6, our pupils continue to explore cyber-bullying and the use of social media in more detail.
We use Newsround’s ‘Caught in the Web’ resources to educate children further about online safety. The children learn about a fictional character who gets into danger after meeting someone in a chatroom.

We also organise regular online safety workshops for pupils.
