Pupils need to develop knowledge and skill in computing, to be able to access the vast technical world they live in. We teach computing skills as a bespoke lesson which they then apply within other areas of the Curriculum.
We believe at Twin Sails that it is hugely important for children growing up in today's digital world to know and understand how to use the internet safely. We have therefore taken positive steps in our learning to ensure that risks are minimalized by educating and empowering our children to use the Internet with care.
Our school E-safety champions are Miss Atwill and Mr Rogers.
They work hard to help keep everyone safe on-line by leading regular assemblies, organising E-safety days and ensuring all children know the 'Internet Awesome' rules.
As a school we have regular 'Be Internet Awesome' assemblies to remind the children of our school charter. We address each of the points individually and make the assemblies fun and engaging.
Here are some of the assemblies we have presented so far this year...
'Ask for help.'
We have been talking about what to do when we are unsure or see something that we don't like on the internet.
To watch the full videos you can visit,
'I will check something before I believe it.'
Miss Atwill and Mr Rogers played a clip of a little girl playing a Banana game.
Suddenly a pop up came up saying, 'CLICK HERE TO WIN A TEDDY BEAR'
Should she click it?...
We paused it to ask the children what the little girl should do next...

"Ask your Mummy!"
"I don't think it's true"
"Be internet alert."
"Don't click it"
"You have to be brave."
"Press the red cross!"
In school this week we have been talking about how to stay safe when using the internet. The children all attended an 'Internet Safety' assembly led by Mr Rogers and Miss Atwill.
