In the ever-changing digital world that we live in, here at St Ives Primary, we recognise the crucial element of E-safety within our Computing curriculum.  We are committed to educating staff, pupils and parents to ensure that online dangers can be identified and responded to appropriately.


The E-safety element of our Computing curriculum uses resources provided by National Online Safety, an organisation committed to making the internet a safer place for children.  The resources are designed in line with the statutory requirements for schools, including the Education for a Connected World framework.  This 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.


The Education for a Connected World framework has been broken down into 8 separate aspects of online education and the E-safety lessons we provide from Nursery through to Year 6, follow the same strands:



  • Self-image and identity

  • Online relationships

  • Online reputation

  • Online bullying

  • Managing online information

  • Health, wellbeing and lifestyle

  • Privacy and security

  • Copyright and ownership

In addition to the E-safety education provided to pupils at school, we also aim to ensure parents are better informed about online dangers.  We provide weekly E-safety segments in the school newsletter which contain relevant, up to date information about current apps, games or websites which all pose potential risks to our young people.
