The internet is a fantastic tool and used almost daily in our work, education and school lives.

At Templewood, we aim to provide children with the skills needed to be safe online, how to identify possible dangers and where to go for help if needed, so that they can play games and chat with friends.

Pupils are taught about copyright and respecting other people's information, images etc through discussion, modelling and activities.

Pupils are aware of the impact of Cyberbullying and know how to seek help if they are affected by any form of online bullying. Pupils are also aware of where to seek advice or help if they experience problems when using the internet and related technologies.

At Templewood pupils are taught to critically evaluate materials and learn good searching skills through cross-curricular teacher models, discussions and via the Computing curriculum.
