Home Learning - Internet Safety


A reminder about internet safety.

It is inevitable at this time that you children will be spending a much greater proportion of their day online. However, it is important to continue to ensure that this time online is conducted in a safe manner. These are some basic requirements for safe internet use:

•        Primary age children should only access the internet in shared areas of the house where monitoring is possible, and never alone in a bedroom
•        Parental controls should be enabled on the highest setting. Beware of phones using mobile data. If possible ensure that where smart phones are being used, it is via home internet with parental controls in place
•        Children are instructed at school that they should only access sites specified by the teacher. It is important that you have this rule at home too.


 As people get used to being home during the COVID-19 lockdown, our devices and the Internet will play a big role in keeping us connected to news, entertainment and distraction! To help you stay safe online we've put together our best online safety tips to get you through your days at home.


CEOP have created some weekly activities that children can complete in order to stay safe online. 

There is one for 5-7s and one for 8-10s.

What is a Digital Leader?

Digital technology is a significant part of our everyday lives. We use technology throughout the day for all jobs and purposes. Therefore ensuring that all our pupils grow into responsible digital citizens who are able to use technology purposefully and safely is of upmost importance to us.


In 2017 we introduced the role of Digital Leaders at our school. Our Digital Leaders are responsible for ensuring pupils in all classes know about ways to keep safe when online. Their main purpose is to educate their peers about online dangers, types of cyberbullying and ways to tackle unkind behaviour when using social media.


Digital Leaders at Ryvers Primary

The Digital Leaders meet every Tuesday with Mrs Czapla. During this meeting they look at different aspects of online safety. Digital Leaders are then responsible for delivering the key messages from their meetings to their fellow pupils in their classes and across school. We believe that pupils should be educated about online safety by not only their teachers but also their peers. Digital Leaders use presentations to educate classes and also to deliver whole-school assemblies. You can keep track about their work by looking at the minutes from their meetings, which are attached below.


Who is a Digital Leader?

Digital Leaders must complete an application form at the beginning of the academic year stating why they are suitable for this role. The applications are checked and one Digital Leader is selected from each class in Key Stage 2. They can be easily identified by their Digital Leader badge.

If you have any suggestions or comments you would like the Digital Leaders to bring to a meeting then speak to a team member, Mr Dawson or to Mrs Czapla.

March 2019

As a school we celebrated Safer Internet Day 2019.

Our amazing Digital Leaders led the way with an assembly which targeted ways in which our pupils can keep themselves safe on social media.We discussed the theme for this year which was 'working together to make a better internet' and how we can be kind with our words and actions.

E Safety



At Ryvers we value the development and expansion of the use of I.C.T., and particularly the internet, and the way that this has transformed learning in our school in recent years. Children and young people will need to develop high level I.C.T. skills, not only to maximise their potential use as a learning tool, but also to prepare themselves as lifelong learners and for future employment. We believe that the benefits outweigh the risks, but only where children are taught about risks associated with the internet and empowered to protect themselves from potential harm, both within and outside school.



The Key Stage 1 children have been taught the Superhero Sid's Top Tips for staying safe on the internet:
