e Safety in the classrooms

Here at Caverstede we make E Safety a priority with our children. We teach them how to stay safe online, who to ask if they want help or advice and how to be a good friend. Teaching E Safety begins the moment your child accesses technology, whether it’s using their tablet to access games, watching you use your phone or using the TV remote. We aim to teach our children to become skilled and safe with a variety of technology.


E Warriors is a scheme of work developed by Caverstede’s E Safety team. It teaches children the early skills they need to prepare themselves to be confident technology users. It focuses around the correct use of technology, safety when using it and it helps them to understand their actions towards others. This is done through a mixture of stories, games and activities throughout the year.


Each year we recognise the Internet Safety Day and tailor activities within the classrooms for our children. Information guides are also sent out to parents offering a range of advice on subjects such as managing screen time, gaming advice for preschool children and tips on buying a smart toy plus many other tips and hints.


The following is a list developed by our E Safety Team to help to show how each area of online safety can be demonstrated by children within the classrooms, during their usual nursery sessions.


Self-image and identity:

  • I can say 'no'/'please stop'/ I'll tell/ I'll ask to somebody who makes me feel sad, uncomfortable, or upset.

 Online Relationships:

  • I can recognise ways in which i can communicate with people i know.

 Online reputation:

  • I know there is information shared about me on Tapestry with people i know

 Online bullying:

  • I can describe ways that some people can be unkind

 Managing online information:

  • I can identify ways i could access information (e.g. internet, youtube, books, tv)

 Health well -being and lifestyle:

  • I know some ways on keeping safe and healthy including when using technology

 Privacy and Security:

  • I know that adults use passwords to keep their information safe on laptops and iPads.

 Copyright and ownership

  • I know what i create belongs to me
  • I can name my work so that others know it belongs to me.



Whilst Internet Safety Day is just for one day a year, at Caverstede we support this buy promoting Internet Safety within the nursery sessions over the whole of a week. 
We will also be providing parents with information to help them reinforce internet safety at home.
Keep a look out for notices, information and links that we will be sending out during the week. We will use ParentMail and will also be adding details to the website and out Facebook page. Information will also be on display on the screen in reception. Details of activities will also be shared on Tapestry, the online learning journal used.
Please also speak to your child's class teacher or key person to find out what is happening in the classrooms each day.
