Please talk with your children about being open and honest and establish rules.We need parents to be good role models.
The children will be given tips -
Never to share personal information
Not to respond to texts,emails or messages from strangers
Don't post or share photos online
Don't click links or open attachments from someone you don't know
Never agree to meet someone you met online
Our Statement of Intent for Computing and Online Safety at SMG is that we are:
Preparing our pupils for the digital world.
Technology is changing the lives of everyone and through teaching computing we equip our children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Our computing curriculum aims to give all our children a socially responsible and safe way to flourish and have the knowledge to operate in the 21st century.
It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information as well as develop their creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We also focus on deepening their knowledge to be able to use information in a safe and effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer literate and competent, responsible users of technology.
