Huncoat primary School is dedicated to keeping our children safe when online. Each child has the right to access Online sites free from harmful images, sites and cyber bullying. The Internet is a necessary and wonderful part of a child's learning - however children need to be aware of the positives of the internet and the negatives as well.
It is our job as responsible adults - in school and at home - to teach our children to use this 21st century internet/ social media/ mobile phones/ game consoles safely and appropriately for their age and for a citizen of the community. Children often have the knowledge to use such media equipment & sites but not the wisdom and as adults we often have the wisdom but not their knowledge. So it is important that keeping children safe from harm is a 2 way discussion between adult and child,
As a school and at home we need to educate our children to help them use the internet safely and enjoy being online.

CREATE CONNECT AND SHOW RESPECT!
Our internet safety day was to raise awareness of Respect on the Internet. Parents were asked to contribute on how they wanted to make Our World more internet safe. They wrote on huge jigsaw pieces on the yard.
We linked our Huncoat Values of: Respect, Appreciation, Caring. Honesty, Determination, Co-operation and Responsibility to how we behave online.
Each class made a HUGE jigsaw piece to connect together to show how we can make the internet a safer and happier place. What a great day showing RESPECT online!
