Through e-safety at BJS, we want to provide a high-quality education that informs and equips pupils to protect themselves and others in an ever-changing digital environment. We want to ensure that pupils become digitally literate (able to use a variety of formats, and express themselves and develop their ideas through - information and communication technology) at a level suitable for the future workplaces and as active participants in a digital world. We want them to be able to evaluate the reliability of sources, assess risk and intent and to keep themselves safe. They will think about how they present themselves online and within the law.
E-Safety is ever changing as it has to keep pace with technology. We aim to base our E-Safety curriculum on the children’s current needs.
