Keeping Children Safe Online - E-Safety at LMPS
At LMPS we believe that 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 critical awareness of their own and other's online behaviour and develop effective strategies for staying safe and making a positive contribution online.
At LMPS we are using Education for a Connected World (see copy below) and SWGfL's Project Evolve resources as teaching and learning tools to help us support our children to live knowledgeably, responsibly and safely in a digital world.
Our E-Safety Curriculum
Our e-safety curriculum focuses on eight different aspects of online education:
1) Self-image and Identity
2) Online relationships
3) Online reputation
4) Online bullying
5) Managing online information
6) Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
7) Privacy and security
8) Copyright and ownership
We aim for our curriculum offer to empower, build resilience, effect positive cultural change and promote the development of safe and appropriate long term behaviours centred around all of our children and the wider school community.
In order to provide an individualised curriculum, we have recently started to use SWGfL's excellent resources and their 'Project Evolve' knowledge map system. By using these resources we ensure that we are targetting the digital learning needs of all our children by assessing their prior and current knowledge and then using specific and tailored resources to deepen children's knowledge and understanding based on our curriculum areas above.
CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. Click on the CEOP REPORT button to find out more...
