Throughout the week commencing Monday 6th February 2017, Ryedale School staff and students have been working hard to raise the profile around staying safe online.
Students in KS3 and KS4 have engaged in thought-provoking assemblies with Miss Wallis and Mr France. They have investigated the way content may be perceived and/or used online.
At Ryedale School we pride ourselves on delivering high quality e-safety information throughout the year, and this awareness week has formed part of this process. In addition all KS3 students have had a one hour long dedicated lesson around e-safety with their computing teacher and KS4 students have had a 20 minute discussion based around ‘Kayleighs Love Story’ with their tutors.
Part of the process of raising awareness has involved students watching a short, engaging, age-appropriate video that looks at some of the risks involved with a lack of safety online:

Finally, Ryedale school also hosted the annual ‘e-safety for parents/carers ‘ workshop on Tuesday 7th February 2017. The evening was open to parents/carers of students from Ryedale school, as well as all our feeder primary schools. The event showcased information and guidance around the curriculum from Miss Wallis, as well as guidance and information around the law from members of North Yorkshire Police. The evening was a great success, and I would like to thank those who attended, I hope that you feel a little more educated and comfortable around e-safety following this event.
Overall, another fantastic week here at Ryedale School, I hope that all students have taken this information on board and are taking the necessary precautions to keep themselves safe online.
