Online Safety


At Framwellgate Moor Primary School it is our mission to make the internet a safe place for children. We achieve this through showing good practice in our online safety policy and procedures including equipping our staff, parents and children with the knowledge they need to understand online dangers and how best to react should an incident arise. We make teaching online safety fun, interactive, challenging and memorable for all pupils.

Digital Leaders 

We have a conscientious and established digital leader group in schoolThe group has representatives from across each year group and meets regularly to tackle online safety related issuesThe children act as delegates and class envoys to support discussions, collect suggestions and provide feedback for the classSome of their work so far has involved introducing SMART online to our children, designing an online safety mascot and having key roles in Online Safety Assemblies.  The digital leaders are currently working on supporting their peers to take the U ARE test before trying out new websites and apps.  The U ARE test helps children to realize that they are responsible for their actions online and building positive online behaviors to protect themselves and others when online. 

Online Safety Mascot 

The Digital Leaders helped to create our Online Safety MascotWe held a competition for the children to design the mascot, considering what they thought we needed to share about online safety.  The winning design was then turned into a soft toy which the children can take to their lessons and associate with everything online safetyThe children named our mascot WIFI and can be found around school reminding children of how to stay safe online.
