We have written an online safety scheme of work for primary schools. This references other freely available resources as well as our own activities. The scheme covers curriculum requirements for all primary year groups and provides a clear progression in delivering the online safety parts of the statutory computing programmes of study. The scheme is designed to be supportive and not prescriptive and links to other subjects in the school curriculum.
The online safety strand of the primary scheme is freely available as we feel this is crucial for supporting safeguarding of children. We hope you will adapt and use the planning within your school. The rest of the scheme is available through subscribing to our scheme of work service. For information about this please visit our contact us page. To access the scheme of work click here.
The link to our scheme is below along with links to some other resources for teaching about online safety including the SWGfL Digital Literacy Curriculum.
