Online safety

 At Gleadless, we are a National Online Safety school. We take the dangers of the internet seriously and work with our families to keep our pupils as safe as possible online.

How do we teach Online Safety?

We teach online safety as part of our PSHE (Jigsaw) curriculum and through our Computing curriculum. This means that children understand how keeping safe online is an important part of their health and wellbeing, as well as a daily consideration when using computers and the internet. We also aim to raise awareness about online safety through events such as assemblies and 'safer internet day'. 

Digital Leaders!

The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is a youth leadership training programme empowering young people to educate their peers about online safety. Gleadless has joined their programme.

Childnet is a leading online safety charity with a mission to make the internet a great and safe place for children and young people. We are the only online safety charity in the UK delivering an online peer-to-peer training programme that directly helps education settings embed a comprehensive approach to online safety.

Groups of Digital Leaders complete training on an interactive, informative and fun gamified platform. They work through online modules, equipping them with the skills they need to go on to educate and support their peers.
