Online & Offline Safety
At Hill View Infant School the lead person for online & offline safety and computing is: Mrs Alice Smith
Computing in the Twenty-First Century has an all-encompassing role within the lives of children and adults alike. New technologies are enhancing communication and the sharing of information.
Thus, online and offline safety is a demonstrably necessary ethos to adopt across all practice that involves computing in one way or another.
Creating a safe computing learning environment includes:
- ensuring there is an appropriate range of technological tools available to our pupils
- developing policies and procedures, with clear roles and responsibilities
- delivering an online and offline safety education programme for pupils, with staff and parents and carers kept fully informed about internet
- Online & offline safety and the acceptable use.
Based on the UKCCIS “Education for a Connected World” Framework, our lessons will cover vital learning objectives, including:
Self-image and Identity,
Managing Online Information,
Health Well-being and Lifestyle,
Privacy and Security and
Copyright and Ownership.
