Safeguarding your pupils online is an increasingly complex process. The use of technology brings exciting new opportunities but your school needs effective strategies to ensure that all pupils are kept safe.
ICTDS Online Safety provides customised support and a range of informative and engaging courses to support you in keeping pupils safe online, meeting Ofsted requirements and assessing and delivering your Online Safety provision.
Our experienced Online Safety team has significant teaching and leadership experience, combined with current Online Safety qualifications which are appropriate to meeting the needs of your pupils, staff, governors and parents.
“Educate, Engage and Empower” is the message at the heart of all of the Online Safety courses on offer. We deliver these with an attention to detail and always suggest fun and engaging ideas for use in the classroom.
It is important that we help pupils and adults working in our schools to be aware of online risks and encourage them to adopt safe and appropriate behaviour.
Safer Internet Day Competition 2020
To mark Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 11 February 2020 I am very pleased to announce the launch of the 2020 Safer Internet day competition (SID2020). This year I have used the lessons suggested by SID2020 and taken our lead from them. This way you have some material to help prepare the children and plenty of resources to back you up before and after the competition. I have also identified where the entry fits in with the Education for a Connected World framework.
See flyers below for details and how to enter.
Please email all entries to the firstname.lastname@example.org email account by the 28th February 2020. The ‘esafety’ email account will not be checked after this date.
I’m really looking forward to receiving your entries (One entry per key stage per school only please) as in previous years.
Key Stage 1
We would like you to create an avatar which you can use as a profile picture when you go online. Explain in a paragraph why you have selected the features/elements included in your design.
Key Stage 2
We would like you to write about how the way we represent ourselves online can affect the impression that we make on other people. This can be done in the form of a short story, poem, rhyme, song, rap or short play.
