Athersley North Primary School
At Athersley North Primary School, we follow the Google Internet Legends programme to ensure we are teaching pupils to become a smarter, safer and happier explorer of the online world.
To make the most of the internet, children need to make smart decisions. Be Internet Legends empowers younger children to use the web safely and wisely, so they can be confident explorers of the online world.
The Internet Legends Code
Think Before You Share
Good (and bad) news travels fast online, and children can sometimes find themselves in tricky situations with lasting consequences. But what can they do to prevent this? The answer: understand how to share smartly with those they know – and those they don’t.
Every Word Matters
Treat online communication the same as face-to-face communication.
If it isn’t right to say, it isn’t right to post. If in doubt, get guidance on what kind of communication is (and isn’t) OK.
Personal details about family, friends – and yourself – should stay private.
The introduction of the Computing curriculum in England aims to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding and skills to use information and communication technology creatively and purposefully. A key aspect of this lies in being digitally literate. Online technologies play a huge role and so providing a broad and balanced e-safety education at each key stage is vital to ensuring that pupils can navigate the online world safely and positively.
