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

Digital Ambassadors

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.

I am looking forward to helping people with their problems and worries online. I am also looking forward to sharing the work of the Digital Ambassadors so that people can see that the online world can be safe and enjoyable if you know how to use it properly.

I’m looking forward to learning about why it’s  important to keep safe online and how we can go about doing this. I will also be thinking very  carefully about the different ways that I can share my online safety messages and information with the whole school community.

I am happy that I am a Digital Ambassador because people need to protect others from the  dangers of the online world and I think that I can do that through modelling positive online behaviours myself.

As a Digital Ambassador, I am going to help people with their problems regarding the online world. I am going to reassure them that it is better to share their worries and concerns so that we can support them and give them advice on how they can keep themselves safe.
