At Loxdale Primary School, we aim to prepare our children to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum, we teach children British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principles and advice found in 'Keeping Children Safe in Education 2016' and the 'Prevent Strategy'. These are incorporated into our school Safeguarding Policy.

To raise awareness of 'Online Safety', we are going to be posting a 'DigiSafe Daily' question each day to give you something to think about and give you a chance to reflect on your online behaviours. Click here to view today's question.

Information for Parents

Technology and the Internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.  

 

Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly. Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour isn’t sensible or respectful.  Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.
