Together We Can Achieve Excellence

E-safety

We live in a digital world. It is never too early to start thinking about e-safety. When tablets, phones and smart TV's have made their way into children's bedrooms it is next to impossible and painful to get them out again. What choices can we make when our children are young, which will keep them safe as independent teenagers?

  • Screen time limits?
  • Switch off time?
  • Devices in bedrooms?
  • Age appropriate games, apps and films — break one rule, and you set a precedent?

Why E-Safety matters?

It is important that pupils understand that safe and sensible online behaviour means and how to use the Internet safely. Recent trends show that young people are always connected, children are accessing the Internet at a younger age e.g. 23% of 8-11 year olds are on social networks (ofcom 2016). Even when using the Internet safely, children can still be at risk due to the behaviour of others, so it is vital they know how to react to such situations.

We are proud to have been awarded the Leicestershire Schools' E-Safety Award in 2018, in recognition of the work we do to keep our pupils E-Safe and aware online. Please see below for more information on the work we are doing and for further information please see our E-Safety Policy.

Internet Legends

Newton Burgoland is an Internet Legends School

As well as training all of our pupils throughout school how to be safe online, Newton Burgoland is also an Internet Legends School. We follow Google's Be Internet Legends Scheme of Work for all pupils from Years 3 to 6. The Scheme, accredited by Parent Zone, The PSHE Assocation and InternetMatters.org, teaches pupils the fundamentals of Online Safety through five key principles: Be Sharp (Think Before You Share), Be Alert (Check Content is Real), Be Secure (Protect Your Stuff), Be Kind (Respect Each Other), Be Brave (When in Doubt, Discuss).

These principles are echoed to the whole school community by our panel of Internet Legends  

Due to Covid Restrictions our Internet Legends have been unable to work across classes this year. We hope to restart the scheme in 20/21.
