Online Safety at Revoe

Online safety is something we all need to think about. Children are exposed to all manner of things whilst online and just like in the real world, we need to be aware of and consider carefully, our interactions in the digital world.

Technology can provide great rewards to those that learn to use it well. It's up to us to make sure that these benefits are received whilst, at the same time the risks are limited.

This page provides information on how we embed online safety across the curriculum at RLA and links to various resources and websites that can offer help and advice in dealing with the possible risks and dangers online.

Safer Internet day (SID), organised by Insafe, is celebrated in February each year to promote the safe and responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world. 

The theme this year is 'Together for a Better Internet' and looks at online identity, asking young people to consider whether they and their peers are free to be themselves online. It focuses on the things we share with each other, how others perceive us and interact with us, as well as how online services use the information we share to identify and profile us.

Be Internet Legends

Last year we welcomed Parent Zone to Revoe who taught us how to #BeInternetLegends by being Sharp, Alert, Secure, Kind & Brave. With the help of Google Interland characters we learnt to Play Safe, Learn Safe and Stay Safe when online.

Remember:

Sharp - Think Before you Share
Alert - Check it's For Real
Secure - Protect your Stuff
Kind - Respect Each Other
Brave - When in Doubt, Discuss
