The fundamentals of e-safety are taken from the national curriculum.


Children are taught e-safety skills through the areas of learning and development (Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Understanding the World).

Key Stage 1

Children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

Key Stage 2

Children are taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.

Embedded within the Cornerstones, e-safety is taught and made reference to throughout computing lessons. In addition to this, e-safety is also taught explicitly at various times throughout the year (after Christmas, Safer Internet Day).
