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:
