organised and looking after their own
belongings; beginning to be more
resilient in their learning and using the
class working walls; learning how to help
each other effectively
 behaviour – recognising when things
have gone wrong and apologising.
Being kind towards others. Using good
 expectations – In year 3 we expect
pupils to produce their best work. We
support and encourage them to do their
best in all lessons.

Online safety:

Our Online Safety policy reflects the importance
using information systems and electronic
communication safely.

We aim to keep our children safe online in school
and promote their safety at home when using
phones, games consoles and wireless technology.
feel it is important to educate our children on the
benefits, risks and responsibilities of using
information technology.

Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining how
to stay safe and behave smartly online (SMART
rules) throughout the year.

We also have a Safer Internet Day on 7th

Online safety:

We are all able to recognise that the internet
is an essential element in modern day life.

Here are a few tips for safe internet use:

Set time limits for internet use. Balance time
on the computer with time outside or other

Ensure your child understands why it is
important not to publish private information.
Placing internet access in communal rooms is a
wise decision.
Discourage meeting online friends unless an
adult is present.
