Online Safety


The National Curriculum states that by the end of KS1 children should be taught to:

  • use technology safely and respectfully,
  • keep personal information private
  • identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

At Wootton Bassett Infants' we are constantly reviewing our safeguarding practice to make sure we are up to date with current procedures. Our policy can be found on the policy page 

Schools in England (and Wales) are required to ensure children are safe from terrorist and extremist material when accessing the internet in school, including by establishing appropriate levels of filtering. Furthermore, the Department for Education’s statutory guidance ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ obliges schools and colleges in England to “ensure appropriate filters and appropriate monitoring systems are in place and regularly review their effectiveness” and they “should be doing all that they reasonably can to limit children’s exposure to the above risks from the school’s or college’s IT system” however, schools will need to “be careful that “over blocking” does not lead to unreasonable restrictions as to what children can be taught with regards to online teaching and safeguarding.”

We have to meet digital and technology standards, that were outlined by the Department for Education Filtering and Monitoring Standards in March 2023.

Permission for use of Images

When we use images of children on either the school website or promotional material permission is sought from parents/carers before they are published. Children are never individually named or identified.

Online Safety at home - November 2023

Balancing Screen Time

Safer Internet Day 2024

As part of our online safety initiative, we took part in Safer Internet Day on the 6th February 2024. This year the focus was ‘Inspiring Change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online' which explored young peoples perspective on new and emerging technology, using the internet to make change for the better and things that can influence and change the way young people think, feel and act online and offline. . The day consisted of a range of activities from creating own tablet games to guessing what job technology from the past did. The children also had opportunities to use the computer resources we have in school such as the Chromebooks, floor robots, and tablets.

Please take a look at our Twitter page to see some photos from the day. 

There were also parent workshops available online via the NSPCC, thank you if you took part in these.
