We encourage and develop the use of technology at OLOL as part of our curriculum offer. We use iPads and Chromebooks, and all children have their own Class Dojo portfolio and Google account to complete their work and log their progress.
As part of the children's learning, we cover the multi-facetted and ever changing elements of keeping safe online, but this is always a partnership with parents and carers at home.
Technology enhances learning, and we want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school, our firewall system prevents children from accessing inappropriate sites. At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of sites, both age-appropriate and inappropriate. We would encourage all parents/carers to talk about online safety with their children. The majority of social media and chat sites (Facebook, TikTok etc.) have an age restriction of 13 years and over therefore our pupils should NOT be using these sites.
