s-Safety Matters

‘Parental Workshop on E-safety- Coming Soon.

As part of our ongoing programme of e-safety we will be running a Parental Workshop on keeping your child safe on the Internet on the 11th March in the school. We will send out more details after half term. As part of the ongoing e-safety curriculum, pupils at the school are also being taught about how to keep safe on the Internet.

This week the school Coding Club began trialling a special educational version of Minecraft called MinecraftEdu. This has been written and adapted for schools to use to support cross-curricular learning and is different to the Open World version of Minecraft. It can only be accessed by pupils at the school in a safe and supervised closed virtual world run by the school. Using this educational version of Minecraft pupils will be able to explore virtual environments created by educators to support and enhance their learning.

If you have any questions about any of these matters please either contact us at the school or come to the Workshop in March’
