At Riverside, we take online safety seriously. Children are accessing technology regularly and the best way to keep them safe is for us to know the risks involved and to educate the children about these risks. As a school, we teach online safety through our computing lessons using resources from Purple Mash. We have termly assemblies about online safety concerns and every third week of term, we release an online safety update with advice in the school newsletter.
Included on this page is our online safety policy, which also includes the AUA (Acceptable Use Agreements) that the children sign. There are also links to pages that you may find useful. I often find a wealth of useful resources on the websites and regularly use them in the online safety newsletter.
We encourage our children to speak to an adult in school if something online makes them feel uncomfortable.
