E-Safety is an integral part of children's education in today's digital world and it is embedded in their learning at school. Technology and the way in which our children engage with the internet is changing rapidly and we need to equip our young people for the changing demands that new technology brings. E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Lingey House Primary School and we teach our children how to use the internet safely and responsibly.
National Online Safety’s FREE app is the easiest way to keep children safe online. It’s a one-stop-shop for parents and educators to learn everything they need to know about the latest apps, games and devices used by children. It provides instant access to online safety education, training and updates so that parents and educators can protect their children from online harm and abuse.
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally with the slogan: Together for a better internet.

Safer Internet Day 2017
Today is Safer Internet Day. Here at Lingey House we think it's essential for children to be safe online. We looked at the Power of Image Assembly and we discussed what we like to do on the internet and how it is important not to share videos and pictures with people you don't know.
In Year 2 we read 'Smartie the Penguin' and helped him make good choices when he is online. We also watched a CEOP video called Animal Magic with SID the superhero.
In Year 4 and Year 5 we looked at a new resource called Like, Share Play. Children discussed Character profiles and stereotyping, we also discussed the feelings we might get when something we don't like happens online.
Throughout E-Safety week everyone will get an E-Safety Session in the classroom.
