At Smawthorne Henry Moore Primary School we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on e-Safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom.
E Safety is a unit planned into our Computing curriculum. Children from Foundation to Year 6 are taught about E Safety in a series of age appropriate discrete lessons. It is also addressed regularly throughout the academic year.
In January 2017, the children in Year 5 and 6 took part in Konflux Play In A Day based on E-safety. All children throughout school observed the performances, learning about E-Safety.
