Educate students about online safety in the real world environment, and you protect your child for a lifetime.
Christopher Harris (online quote)
Children are exposed to a developing e-safety programme throughout their time in school, accessing age-appropriate messages and content that help them: to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; to recognise acceptable / unacceptable online behaviours; and to identify where to seek advice and help should they have any concerns about their online experiences.
All children have a shared understanding of the SMART (Safe – Meeting – Accepting – Reliable – Tell) rules for E-Safety and there are key reminders / help routes displayed throughout school.
Safer Internet Day 2017 and the Barney & Echo Internet Safety Roadshow
We took part in Safer Internet Day on February 7 2017. During this half-term our pupils were using E-Safety workshops to develop their critical thinking skills and discussing the images they view and post online.

We also sent a group of our Ambassadors to the Barney & Echo Internet Safety Roadshow. The roadshow, which was held at Keepmoat Stadium, encourages pupils from around the area to work together in raising awareness of e-safety. Pupils listened to talks and took part in activities designed to help them keep themselves and those around them safe online. The pupils who represented Richmond Hill at the event will now put what they have learnt into practice by giving a presentation about e-safety to the rest of the school.
