Here at Gorsemoor we teach the children about Online Safety using the Education for a Connected World framework. We ensure the children gain the relevant knowledge and skills to stay safe in a digital world through an embedded approach. This enables staff and children to thrive in a culture of safety throughout their school journey and beyond.
"The Education for a Connected World framework describes the Digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages of their lives. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it. The document supports one of the key aims of the government’s Internet Safety Strategy of supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contribution online, as well enabling teachers to develop effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks."
