Many children are using social media to keep in touch with each other during this social distancing time, please see the letter below for information on Houseparty.
Digital Well-Being is an integral part of children's education in today's world and is embedded in their learning at school. As part of our curriculum, all children from Foundation to Year 4 follow our IT Scheme of Work which includes a very strong focus on digital literacy, including all aspects of on-line life such as communications, gaming, file sharing, streaming and downloading.
We have a group of Digital Leaders from years three and four who work alongside our school E-safety champion, Mrs Washbrook, to help keep everyone at Springdale safe on-line.
Some good E-Safety advice for Parents and children can be found on the following websites, especially with all the extra time children will be on-line during their time at home!
