E-Safety - Keeping Your Child Safe Whilst Online
A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together
Let Your Light Shine ~ Matthew 5:16
At Warmingham CE Primary School we believe in keeping your child safe both in and out of school.
Children today have embraced new technologies as a source of information, education and entertainment. The use of digital technology is regarded as normal by this generation, and it is now fully integrated into their daily lives.
Children and young people are using technology in new and exciting ways, enhancing and enriching their lives with the many tools on offer.
In their exploration of these technologies, young people are not only developing their ICT skills, but also a whole host of 'softer' skills - creativity, communication and networking skills, for example - which will be much in demand by the employers of the future.
Children are increasingly referred to as 'digital natives': citizens born into a digital world, who grow up surrounded by and emerged in the technology and tools of the digital age. Their confidence and skills in using this technology is typically high, but their knowledge and awareness of the inherent issues, risks and dangers is usually very low. We empower children and young people to keep themselves safe. We believe that internet safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development.
