At Firs we work hard to ensure children understand the importance of Internet Safety. In February 2017 we took part in ‘Safer Internet Day’ and introduced to pupils our new approach to E-safety: Zip it, Block it, Flag it. This is then recapped every year for Safer Internet Day and applied in our computing lessons.
Children have completed a range of activities to develop their understanding of this and their work is displayed within classrooms and around the school.
It is important that, as well as by staff at school, children are also encouraged to stay safe on the internet by parents at home. The document below explains the meaning of ‘zip it, block it, flag it’ and also contains guidance from the safer internet day website.
We also have an E-Safety Policy and Cyber-Bullying Policy which can be found on our policies page. Click here
