Catherine Wayte

Primary School


At Catherine Wayte Primary School, we understand the importance of technology in a rapidly changing society. As it has always been, the children of today develop and use the technologies of tomorrow. Therefore, we foster their basic knowledge and understanding of the technologies that they use today. We acknowledge that, out of school, our children have varying degrees of opportunities provided by technologies such as tablets, computers and smartphones. Consequently, we ensure that they learn how to put these opportunities to good use, in order for them to live happy, safe and successful lives.

Year 5 and 6 Online Safety Workshop with the PCSOs

The Stay Safe Initiative - November 2023

Over the course of the week, all the children at Catherine Wayte have been looking at a variety of different issues involving internet safety.

FS2 – learnt about information sharing; what they could share and should not share online.

Y1 – shared a story and then discussed how they could use the internet to find and watch amazing things but also what to do if something scared or frightened them.

Y2 – played a game talking about online safety issues and what advice they would give to people in those situations.

Y3 – discussed situations that could arise, and how to handle them.

Y4 – thought carefully about what issues can affect them, and what they most need help with.

Y5 – talked about their online milestones and what the future could hold for their online journey.

Y6 – compared being a good listener online with in person and how those qualities can be the same.

All children had the opportunity to make a sheet about ‘5 Trusted Adults’ in their lives.  These adults are ones the children can go to if they feel scared or worried about an online problem.  They included adults at school, as well as at home.
