Online Safety

At Batheaston Church School, online safety is a key element within our Computing curriculum.  We offer a whole school approach, acknowledging the digital lives of our pupils, whilst providing support and guidance on how to navigate the positives and potential risks online.  We place an importance on understanding what websites and apps our pupils regularly engage with, therefore, giving us a unique perspective of an ever-changing digital world.  We provide teaching and learning experiences that are both discreet, through computing lessons and through cross curricular links, such as PSHE and RSE.  Online safety is fully embedded throughout the year, however, we do always take part in ‘Safer Internet Day‘ where all age groups focus on key aspects; this year the theme was ‘Together for a better Internet’.  Please click on the link below to access this year’s newsletter, based upon the work covered over a week.
