The Internet is a fantastic resource that many of us rely on for things in our everyday lives. It has made a huge impact on the way we do things. At Derwentwater we also need to think about how to encourage the appropriate use of technologies in our lives. For us, eSafety is embedded into the computing curriculum and has a focus on the following areas:
Key Stage 1
use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
Key Stage 2
use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
