At Wootey Junior School we follow Common Sense Education lessons to learn about Digital Citizenship!
We have also recently been awarded the Common Sense School Award for our work in teaching the children all about digital citizenship!
Protecting your children online
The best way to protect your child online is to be informed and involved. Talking about your child’s internet use and sharing time online together will allow you to check that your child is using the internet and social media appropriately for their age (many social media sites have an age restriction of 13). It will also provide opportunities for your child to discuss any activity that has puzzled or upset them.
If you have any questions please speak to your child's class teacher or Mrs Lawrence who is our Computing Lead.
Below we have provided links to some of the websites available to give parents/carers advise on how to approach internet safety.
Here is our Home School Media Agreement:

Safer Internet Day 2022
All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online
For Safer Internet Day 2022 the children have taken part in lots of different activities. They watched a video about how children from other schools stay safe online, took part in a lesson guiding an Alien on how to stay safe when playing games on the internet and also a quiz testing their safety knowledge!
Year 3 and 4 then created some gaming mascots to help keep them safe when they play online, and Year 5 and 6 created a video of tips for others to stay safe.
Have a look below to see the children's fantastic work!

Story Resources to share with children
We understand that children, especially in Year 6, may wish to bring a mobile phone to school if they are walking home. Children may bring a mobile to school but they must hand it in to the office when they arrive at school. Mobile phones are strictly not allowed to be used in school. Children can collect their mobile from the office at the end of the school day. A mobile phone agreement must also be signed.
