The Online Safety Group

The Online Safety Group provides a consultative group that has wide representation from the school community, with responsibility for issues regarding online safety and monitoring the Online Safety Policy, including the impact of initiatives.

Members of the group assist the Online Safety Coordinator with:

    • the production, review and monitoring of the school’s Online Safety Policy/documents
    • mapping and reviewing the online safety curricular provision, ensuring relevance, breadth and progression
    • monitoring incident logs (if appropriate)
    • consulting stakeholders (including parents/carers) and pupils about online safety provision
    • monitoring improvement actions

Meetings

Our most recent meeting was on Friday 25th January. We had lots of discuss, including Safer Internet Day 2019! If you would like to know more about our group and what we do, please contact us at school and we would be happy to provide you with more information.

Safer Internet Day 2019

We are registered with the UK Safer Internet Centre, who lead Safer Internet Day. Safer Internet Day is a chance to raise the profile of Online Safety within schools and organisations. It has a different theme each year. This year’s key theme was about permission. We held our Safer Internet Day on Wednesday 6th February. The OLS Team of children led our assemblies and follow up activities took place in class. Each class completed a survey to find out what the children know about OLS, what they would like to know about OLS and what they have learned about OLS. This information has been displayed in school on our foyer TV and here on our website. Click here to read our latest pupil survey about OLS.

Current Key Message from our children team members

“Only play games that are appropriate for your age! There are consequences to playing games that are not suitable for your age, like becoming violent.”

“Online games are not the only way to have fun! What other things could you do, other than using a phone, tablet, computer etc.?”

“Know how to report and block a person if they are behaving inappropriately. Ask a trusted adult or friend to help you if you are unsure how to do this.”
