Primary School Federation

Online Safety

Technology is an ever-evolving and changing tool that benefits everyone from all walks of life.


At Bramford and Somersham, we believe “computing effectively” is a vital skill that children must learn if they are to be able to communicate and create effectively and safely in a developing digital world.


Across both schools we aim to teach many important computing skills throughout our broad and balanced curriculum, in many different subjects. We also teach the importance and value of staying safe online in our approach – something that is a constant challenge to both children and grown-ups. In this way, our children will become effective, efficient and diligent when dealing with the latest information technology.


Our Online Safety curriculum is built using the ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework. This framework describes the Digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have the opportunity to develop at different ages and stages of their lives. It highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it.


The document supports one of the key aims of the government’s Internet Safety Strategy of supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contribution online, as well enabling teachers to develop effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks.

Tips for children for staying safe online:


  • Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.


  • Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
