Internet Safety.

Keeping children safe is priority at West End. We educate and empower our children so that they know how to keep themselves safe on the internet.

We ensure that our curriculum teaches the children how to make safe choices and that they know where to go for help and advice if they are worried about anything. This work is well embedded and reinforced regularly in Computing and PSHE sessions with specific tasks and activities around Esafety. We use a variety of resources for this including the CEOP approved site ‘Think U Know’,  BBC CBBC resources, UKSafer Interent Centre, NSPCC resources and a variety of books and stories. Much of our work is delivered in line with the Leeds approved PSHE scheme of work and we also use the support of Horsforth Children's services and local PCSOs. 

In addition to the on-going Esafety education that all classes receive we mark Safer Internet day each year in school.

Safer Internet Day (SID) is celebrated in nearly 100 countries around the world in February of each year. In Europe, 30 countries mark the day with support from the European Commission's Safer Internet Programme. SID is coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people.

Safer Internet Day 2018 - Tuesday 6th February- Create, Connect and Share Respect - A better internet starts with you.
