ESafety at Gwaunfarren

The internet is an amazing tool that many of us use so frequently, we take things for granted. However, it is important to remember how dangerous it can be, especially for our children. Internet  Safety is so important to us. We want to educate our children to use the internet safely and make the right choices at all times. 

As well as teaching the children ICT skills we also teach the children about staying safe online. Once every half term we teach a focused ICT lesson based on internet safety using the swgfl Digital Literacy Resources (Supported by WAG). The Digital Literacy Resources are designed to empower pupils and students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in our digital world. Also as part of the new Digital Competence framework, through the Citizenship strand we provide opportunities to apply and consolidate the skills taught in discrete ICT lessons in other curriculum areas.

We are also proud to announce that we have become an eCadet school. The eCadets is an award winning programme which trains, empowers and supports a team of pupils to keep their friends safe online. You can find out more about our Gwaunfarren eCadets by clicking on the eCadet link in the navigation at the top of the page.

In order to keep our children safe we need to work together. In this section of the website you will find various resources which can help support you to keep your children safe online.
