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 to name but a few. We also use Makewav.es. resource to allow the Year 5 and 6 children to experience blogging in a safe controlled environment using
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.

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.
