At Riddlesden St Mary's, E-safety issues form an integral part of our ICT curriculum.
We promote Zip It, Block It, Flag It – the Click Clever, Click Safe Code for children and young people.
ZIP IT refers to children keeping their personal information and material private and thinking about what they say or do online.BLOCK IT reminds children to block people who communicating inappropriately and not to open any links and attachments they receive by email or through social networks if they’re not 100 per cent sure they’re safe.
FLAG IT advises children to report to a parent, guardian, teacher or someone in authority, anything that upsets them while they are online or if someone asks them to meet up in the real world.
