Barrow Hedges Primary School

Online Safety - Leader Jenny Rawlinson

In this section...

At Barrow Hedges, we recognise the importance of computing and how it supports the learning of other curriculum subjects. We are always striving to find new and exicting ways to develop pupils computing skills. As a school, we have a unique role protecting children while preparing them for life outside of school; a life that now includes an online world.  Our computing curriculum includes an element of E-Safety each term where we aim to educate and empower pupils so that they understand the risks, build resilience and ultimately become good "cyber citizens".

During Safer Internet Day in February 2018, the children ‘took a pledge’ to say that they commit to safe and responsible use of technology. The children were taught about keeping safe when using the internet through a special assembly and a series of lessons. We take the E-Safety pledge annually and will do so again in February 2019. Our Digital Leaders have written about the exciting Internet Safer Day we had this year! (See attchments at the bottom of the page)

We expect all children at Barrow Hedges to follow our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) when using technology at school.  Click on the link below to download a copy (it could be useful at home too).  In addition, our E-Safety Policy can be found by clicking on the hyperlink or going to the parents tab, then policies.

Keeping children safe online is a shared responsibility. To help you to support us with this and to help your child to learn to use the internet safely at home, here are some links and documents we hope you will find useful below:

Our Digital Leaders

We are the Digital Leaders. We are a team of Year Six pupils who are the most confident and skilled users of technology. We love computing! Our goal is to inspire our classmates and help them to stay safe online. We meet every Thursday to discuss our latest projects and share ideas. We lead assemblies and set up technology for the school.

We are always working hard, organising lots of activities to help the children at our school learn, putting together videos to share on the website, making posters about all the exciting things going on at Barrow Hedges and helping out teachers and children with different technology.  

If you need any help, advice or support then please don't hesitate to come and see us.  

 

I wanted to be a digital leader because I love teaching younger children and being a good role model. I am looking forward to doing assemblies and drop-in lessons on E-Safety.  I  will do my best to teach others to be safe online.

 

 

 

 

I wanted to be a digital leader because I felt that E-safety is something very important and needs to be a bigger focus. I wanted to make a difference and I found that this was a great way to do this. I like understanding how younger children feel about these matters.

 

I wanted to be a digital leader because I love using the Internet for a range of things. I thought that I could use my computer skills to teach younger children enjoyable and exciting activities. I am looking forward to working with lots of new technology in our school!

 

 I wanted to be a digital leader because I am good with technology. I want to help others to stay safe online. My favourite thing to do online is watch Youtube and play video games. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to be a digital leader because I enjoy lending a helping hand to others. I want to teach other children fun,  enjoyable yet informative lessons. My favourite things on the internet are watching videos, playing games and talking with my friends. As a Digital Leader I will always give my best!

 

 

 

I wanted to be a digital leader because I love helping children. I would really like to raise the profile of online safety and make sure that all children are being good online users.
