Today Your Child Learned...

Dear Parent & Guardian, 
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...

Today’s PSHE Lesson

The Digital World (Netiquette And Safety Online)

The Digital World has offered us many ways to communicate with each other. Some platforms have age restrictions, some have user rules and some have word limits for messages. Most of us know what etiquette rules are when we speak to people face to face, on the phone or for the first time but can we say that we know and stick to these rules when we’re using technology?  Our children need to know that the sentiments of courtesy, respect, politeness and honesty still apply when we communicate using technology and that rules to keep us safe online should be followed too.

What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson

Here’s what we went through today...

  • ‘Digital etiquette’/’netiquette’ means treating others in a way that you would want to be treated online and whenever using digital technology.
  • Keeping positive and truthful, being kind about others, not overdramatising and double checking everything before we press ‘SEND’.
  • Knowing about the age limits placed on social media sites and to understand why these age limits apply.

How You Can Help From Home

Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...

  • Talk to your child about what they understand about ‘netiquette’.
  • Talk to your child about their experiences online or digitally to find out whether they’re using ‘netiquette’ and whether others are using ‘netiquette’ when they contact your child.

Go Above & Beyond 

Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...

  • Talk to your child about the social media sites that they use and check that these are age appropriate.
  • Remind them why there are have age limits in place.
  • Have discussions about what they could do if they were being made to feel uncomfortable, unhappy, hurt, sad or upset when using digital technology. 
  • Talk about the netiquette rules and explain that it’s important to use these rules when being online or communicating digitally.

When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.

The pupils at our school are really enjoying the lifewise scheme. The scheme is very staff-friendly and easy to monitor. More staff are now teaching lifewise as a consequence and all the DfE statutory guidance (+more) is covered. The staff at lifewise are extremely professional. As it is a digital platform, lessons are constantly being up-dated and improved.

Lifewise is a fantastic tool to use. It is easy and clear to navigate and as well as in class we have used Lifewise during remote learning sessions, whilst in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend this 'wellbeing session' tool to any school. It is exceptional.

Lifewise was so helpful for my online ELSA sessions. The format gave the children the chance to express their emotions. They loved the quiz and enjoyed the conversation.
