Let's Keep Safe!
Internet Safety has been in the news a lot recently and it remains critical to teach children how to be safe in a world of connected devices. With so much of our lives being governed by online interactions, it is important that children, parents and staff understand what the internet is, how it works, how it is used as well as its risks and benefits. At WBJS, we teach internet safety every year for a half term and help children ask questions, highlight risks and challenges and help children think critically about the technology they use and how they use it.
To support our curriculum, we use the materials provided by Google's BeInternetAwesome pack which can be found here: https://beinternetawesome.withgoogle.com/en_uk/toolkit. As part of this, parents, teachers and children find the Interland game a fun and comprehensive start to internet safety.
