Online Safety

At Lyne and Longcross C of E Primary School, we are working with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.


On this page you'll find our Online Safety Policy and our Acceptable User Policy. There are also links to websites which offer advice and support, details about Online Safety events that are taking place in school and current classroom activities.


At the bottom of the page you'll also find some 'child friendly' search engine. Even if you have installed internet filters, there is no 100% guarantee that your kids will not be able to access or stumble onto inappropriate content like adult or horror content that may be disturbing for kids. 
Help is however on hand, in the form of “safe search engines” which help children find relevant information in a safe, kid-friendly setting. These search engines do not display results or images that are inappropriate for children.  They are useful tools for children when they need to research for their school work or simply to explore the internet on their own.  

Safer Internet Day 2024 - Film for parents and carers

Safer Internet Day 2024 will take place on the 6th of February 2024, with celebrations and learning based around the theme 'Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online'. Safer Internet Day is the UK's biggest celebration of online safety.

In The Classroom

Every year, children complete an Online Safety Unit which is specifically tailored to their year group. These units include interactive games, videos and activities, all focussing on the importance of Online Safety.


In 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.


We use resources including ThinkUKnow's Hector's World and Lee and Kim's Adventures.  


In 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.


We use resources including ThinkuKnow's The Cyber Café and ChildNet's The Adventures of Kara, Winston and the SMART Crew.

The National Online Safety websites is a great resource for all things 'online safety'. They publish weekly online safety guides which cover a range of topics including social media and gaming.


If you're concerned about a new game or app, you check the links above to see if they have produced a help guide for it. 


We will keep updating this section of the website so that we can make sure you have all the information that you might need to help keep your children safe online.
