At Bell Primary School we believe the teaching of Cyber safety and responsible online behaviour is essential in the lives of our students and is best taught in partnership between home and school.
21st Century students spend increasing amounts of time online, and to gain the greatest benefit from the opportunities provided by this online environment, students need to do the right thing by themselves and others, particularly when no one is watching.
Safe and responsible behaviour is explicitly taught at our school and parents/guardians are requested to support this behaviour at home.
As written on The Alannah and Madeline Foundation’s eSmart Website:
“An eSmart school is a school where the smart, safe and responsible use of information and communications technology is a cultural norm. Students, teachers and the wider school community are equipped to embrace the best these technologies can offer, while being savvy about the pitfalls.”
Below are some Cyber Safety links that you can use to support the learning of students to become smart, safe and responsible digital citizens:
