Online Safety

At North Crescent, we understand the responsibility to educate our pupils on online safety issues; teaching them the appropriate behaviours and critical thinking skills to enable them to remain both safe and legal when using the internet and related technologies, in and beyond the context of the classroom. 

As part of our Computing Curriculum all children follow our Online Safety Scheme of work focusing on identifying some of the risks from being online and how to keep themselves safe. The teachers reinforce these online safety messages during the use of Computing across the wider curriculum. In lessons where the internet is accessed, pupils are guided to sites checked as suitable for their use and processes are in place for dealing with any unsuitable material that is found in internet searches. Pupils are taught in all lessons to be critically aware of the materials/content they access online and be guided to validate the accuracy of information. 


In school we have clear rules about using the internet and these are displayed in every classroom. (See also North Crescent Online Safety Agreement link below) 


Online Safety

The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of safeguarding our children.

North Crescent have teamed up with National Online Safety to bring you information and resources. Please create an account  using the link below:

Keep your child safe this Christmas

It’s important to be aware of technology, toys and internet safety this Christmas. That’s because over the next few years, millions of objects will be connected to the internet. You might have already bought an internet-connected Christmas gift for your child, so it’s important to be aware of the potential risks.

What is the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things, sometimes called the IoT, refers to everyday objects that connect to the internet. Internet of Things devices can be activated using voice commands and can be controlled remotely using a smartphone app. Lots of these devices are also Bluetooth-enabled, meaning they are able to connect to nearby devices, without having to connect to the internet.

Internet of Things examples include:

    • smart speakers, such as Google Home and Amazon Echo
    • wearables, such as Fitbit and Apple Watch
    • smart meters measuring household energy consumption.

What is the Internet of Toys?

Along with the devices above, many toys now connect to the internet. This is sometimes referred to as the Internet of Toys. These products include:

    • toys with voice and/or image recognition, such as Hello Barbie™ and Furby Connect
    • app-enabled robots, drones and other mechanical toys, such as Dash and Dot.

What are the risks of internet-connected devices?

Because IoT devices can feel unobtrusive in the home, you may not realise they pose the same security risks as more conventional devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This means you could be more relaxed about your security when using them. In reality, these devices collect personal data, often both audio and visual. These devices might also be vulnerable to hacking, as there are no safeguards or security standards for internet-connected objects.

PARENTS - Put your phones down this Christmas! Christmas Song

Christmas is an exciting time, with a whole lot going on in the world, so it’s all too easy to let our fascination with the online world distract us from what’s really important – spending time with our families. National Online Safety are here to provide parents with advice and support (and hopefully a few laughs) with a new song for parents all about not spending Christmas glued to our phones!

Three years ago, O2 joined forces with the NSPCC to help give parents the knowledge, skills and confidence to keep their kids safe online.

The partnership brought together O2’s tech knowhow, alongside the NSPCC’s expertise in protecting children.

This year, they have teamed up to create a new quiz game using the Amazon Alexa platform, to pit parents up against kids in a battle of digital wits. By testing both sides’ knowledge of the online world, we’re aiming to get families talking about the exciting possibilities of the internet, as well as the risks to look out for. Watch the Youtube clip below to see how it works.
