At school, we use a range of strategies to ensure we are teaching children good habits and safe behaviours when going online, as well as providing a range of contexts and experiences for them to practice and embed these habits. These will often include:
- Modelling of safe behaviours through Office 365, Teams, Yammer, Skype, use of the internet, and other online tools;
- Drip feed of key messages through all curriculum subjects, such as how to search safely through a search engine, or how to collaborate in a document;
- Sequential and progressive planning for direct teaching of Online Safety throughout the school, using CEOP's 'Think You Know' material and the South West Grid For Learning's online safety scheme;
- Specific whole school focus on annual and national events, such as anti-bullying week; and Safer Internet day.
