How do we teach Online Safety?
At Cherry Tree we are supporting children to stay safe and make a positive contributions online, as well equipping children with effective strategies for understanding and handling online risks.
Using the National Curriculum alongside the Education for a Connected World, we cover eight different aspects of online education:
1. Self-image and Identity
2. Online relationships
3. Online reputation
4. Online bullying
5. Managing online information
6. Health, wellbeing and lifestyle
7. Privacy and security
8. Copyright and ownership
How can children stay safe online?
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help children to keep in touch with friends and help their education – but it can also cause harm – to theirself and to others.
Remember help is always available at school for children if they are having any problems online.

Tips for staying safe online:
- Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
