Online Safety and Digital Leaders

Online Safety At Comberton

We consider the safety of the children of paramount importance. In a modern world, this includes ensuring they are safe on the internet and with the technology they use. The internet is a wonderful resource that we all make use of, however it can be a dangerous place to be. In school we educate the children, throughout their time here, about what those dangers are and how they can protect themselves from them. We have a system in place which filters what the children are able to see and do whilst using the internet in school. Children also know who Hector the dolphin is and how to use him to keep them safe on the computers. 


Digital Leaders


We have established Digital Leaders at Comberton Primary School, consisting of pupils and staff, along with a  local PCSO representative. We have representatives from each Key Stage 2 class, whose job it is to keep the rest of the school informed and up to date when it comes to Online safety. Digital Leaders can also offer technical support and help in computing lessons.


Safer Internet Day

Each year, we celebrate Safer Internet Day as part of our Online safety curriculum. This year, the theme is: All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online. From gaming and chat, to streaming and video, young people are shaping the interactive entertainment spaces they are part of. In our lessons we will be focussing on young people's roles in creating a safer internet, whether that is whilst gaming and creating content, or interacting with their friends and peers.


We will continue our discussions about how it is important to be careful with our personal information online, as well as teaching children how to use images and social media responsibly. All children, from Reception to Year 6 have thought about how they can play their part in building a better internet.


You can support us and your child by watching the 'Family Conversation Starters' at 


For more information and support on how to stay safe, take a look at the website below, which provides advice for parents and carers.


Safer Internet Day 2022 - Respect and Relationships Online in Gaming #playyourpart

We spoke with primary schools around the UK to discuss what they thought was most important when it came to respect and relationships online when gaming.

SID TV: Zap and Zoom - A Space Race - film for 3-7 year olds

This is a 360 degree film which includes our animated characters Zap and Zoom, who also feature in our Education Pack for 3-7 year olds. In this film we see Zap and Zoom help young children who are playing a video game at home.

SID TV: Data Detective - film for 7-11 year olds

We've created a Virtual Reality app, Digital Detectives, that allows 7-11 years to explore a virtual house while learning about consent online and the ways in which their information might be shared online. This film is to be used alongside the Education pack for 7-11 year olds.

Helping at Home


Online Resilience tool - The Online Resilience Tool provides a practical way to assess young people’s online behaviour and help them make decisions about whether that behaviour represents risk of harm.



We strongly recommend that you consider how safe the internet environment is for your children at home. Take a look at the ThinkUKnow website by using the link below. They have some fabulous games, videos and information about staying safe online that may help you protect your children and be aware of the risks.


If you see something or become aware of an online danger, you can report it to CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre) who will investigate the concern.  


Another useful site is PACE which  helps parents across the UK understand what is happening to their child and how parents are the prime agents in helping their child exit exploitative relationships.:

SID TV: Your Choice or Mine - film for parents and carers

We put young people and their parents head-to-head in a game show and asked them questions about consent online. We wanted to find out if parents and their children have the same or differing opinions on a range of online consent topics.

Digital Parenting: How to promote E-Safety at home - not just on Safer Internet Day, but all year round!

We are also aware that many children of primary school age have access to mobile internet technology such as smart phones and tablets, which they can use to access social networking sites such as Whatsapp, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. The minimum age to have an account on these sites is 13. If you would like any more information on this, we have included parents' guides below to these sites.

We have also included links to a number of mobile operator's sites that have sections of their website dedicated to E-Safety.
