E-Safety

‘Shine like stars in the universe’ 

Philippians 2;15

Our vision provides a guiding light to the pupils, staff, Governors and parents to ensure we have a dynamic mix of high achievement for all, exceptional pastoral care and expansive opportunities for the children. We want our children to become the exemplary citizens of the future. We are a vibrant, happy, family orientated community where everyone really feels they can flourish and  achieve anything to which they set their hearts and minds.

E-Safety

South Otterington CE Primary School is strongly committed to using the Ethical Leadership Framework to create and uphold an ethos that stresses high achievement, equal opportunities, the valuing of cultural diversity, the provision of a secure environment, partnerships with parents and the wider community.

Our e-safety curriculum compliments our Computing Curriculum, which covers the principles of online safety in EYFS and Ks1 and KS2, with progression in the content to reflect the different and escalating risks that pupils face. This includes:

  • how to use technology safely, responsibly, respectfully and securely
  • where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies

There are also other curriculum subjects which include content relevant to teaching pupils how to use the internet safely, including as part of our protected characteristics in our PSHE curriculum:

  • freedom of speech
  • the role and responsibility of the media in informing and shaping public opinion
  • the concept of democracy, freedom, rights, and responsibilities
