eSafety ideas for schools

As promised the Redbridge LSCB eSafety subgroup have compiled a set of eSafety ideas to start the thinking going in preparation for Safer Internet Day 2011 - 8th February. Whatever age group you work with, from KS1 to KS5 here are some discussion starters, assembly ideas, lesson activities, competitions and even links to age-appropriate posters.

All the resources are available from weblinks given within the document, although some interactive resources will only work for London schools. This document is not a comprehensive list of everything, rather a start point for teachers thinking and planning for eSafety lessons.

Ofsted say that in outstanding schools "In the five schools where provision for e-safety was outstanding, all the staff, including members of the wider workforce, shared responsibility for it. Assemblies, tutorial time, personal, social, health and education lessons, and an age-appropriate curriculum for e-safety all helped pupils to become safe and responsible users of new technologies."

Get everyone involved, be creative and get the message heard.
