At River Primary School we use Education for a Connected World, to support our planning and teaching linked to online safety.
"Children have the right to enjoy childhood online, to access safe online spaces, and to benefit from all the opportunities that a connected world can bring to them, appropriate to their age and stage. As they grow older, it is crucial that they learn to balance the benefits offered by technology with a critical awareness of their own and other’s online behaviour and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online."
(Education for a Connected World 2020)
YEAR 6 PODCASTS
Some of our Year 6 children recently took part in an interactive media workshop as part of a PSHE day focusing on online safety, initiated by the Office of the Kent Police & Crime Commissioner.
During the workshop in school, they examined and discussed healthy relationships, online harms, cyber safety and the possible consequences for young people their families and friends.
LISTEN to their podcasts, designed to spread these important messages to other young people.
This October, Internet Matters is focusing on keeping the whole family safe. Click on the image below to find out more.

On-line Safety and Your Child - Information for Parents and Carers
On-line safety is a serious matter that the whole school community need to be concerned about.
How can parents be proactive in keeping their child safe?
We offer advice about keeping children safe when on-line. We ask parents and carers to be aware that there can be issues in relation to the on-line safety of children and young people within Kent and the wider area. This is not something that ‘happens to other people’. Please consider your child’s safety and your full awareness of the potential risks before giving your child access to mobile phones, games consoles, tablets, laptops and any other on-line devices.
We know that even our youngest children have access to electronic devices at home. It is vital that all parents are aware of the importance of keeping children safe. Lessons in school explain and demonstrate how to stay safe and behave appropriately on-line but we can only be successful in keeping children safe on-line if we work with parents and carers. Your help is needed to talk to your children about how they can keep themselves safe and behave appropriately on-line. It is important that we are all vigilant when children are using the internet and act to ensure they are protected from people who may pose a risk to them. Children can accidentally or deliberately be exposed to illegal, unwanted or unpleasant content, comments or activity on-line and there are steps you can take at home to minimise this risk.
