Online Safety

                                                            Online Safety at Hever

Online Safety Leaders: Mrs H Bligh and Mrs J Seymour (Designated Safeguarding Leads)

Online Safety Intent

At Hever, we teach most of our internet safety lessons through Computing and P.S.H.E. lessons, overseen by our school Designated Safeguarding Leads. The curriculum intent for 'Online Safety' is that children will be given the relevant toolkit, alongside the vocabulary, knowledge and skills needed, to understand the many positives and dangers of using the internet. They will feel inspired to lead their own learning, engage in discussion, and ultimately, understand how to stay safe online.  As a nurturing school, we will fully support the children in their learning, intending that all children will feel confident discussing any internet safety concerns with our caring staff team.

Online Safety implementation and impact

The school has a strict Internet Protocol so that pupils are able to use the Internet safely. The Kent Learning Zone enables our children to access the Internet via a secure server. Online Safety is taught discretely, as well as woven through all computing learning, in both a fun and informative way, using videos, games, stories and various other activities. All staff are provided with training by the Computing Subject Lead, provided with skills and vocabulary progression grids, 'knowledge organisers' and other appropriate and engaging resources, to ensure the quality of this important subject. Staff are experts in this area and are quick to respond to any concerns which may arise.  Parents and Carers are regularly updated with guidance on online safety, whilst resources are provided to support children’s learning on this subject at home. The impact of our provision is that children will be empowered and enabled to make the right choices when navigating online platforms.
