eSafety in the Curriculum

Chris Watson trained as a CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection) Ambassador a number of years ago; this means that as well as being able to deliver the material directly to young people, she is able to train other adults to become CEOP Trainers. Because of this we have access to a wide range of training materials.

E-Safety and Cyber Bullying is covered at least once a year formally in the classroom, although the topic is discussed whenever it arises. We take a 360° approach to this and discuss how everyone is affected by the action, not just the victim.

By one person delivering the topic to years 2-6, we can ensure that key messages are reinforced and pupils’knowledge and understanding is developed and increasingly aligned with the‘real’ world.
