Online Safety for Parents
Online Safety is a vital part of safeguarding here at Sugar Hill and as such we take it very seriously. Our children's online world is rapidly changing and as such, we need to keep up! At Sugar Hill we continually strive to keep ahead of latest developments and trends, updating our teaching curriculum and the resources available to pupils and parents, to help keep our children safe in their online worlds.

We are excited to introduce a new addition to our school’s Relationships and Health
Education provision. As children spend an increased amount of time online, we felt it
necessary to take further steps to ensure their online safety and help them navigate the
Natterhub is a safe, educational platform for primary schools. It looks and functions
like 'real' social media but it is gated to the school environment meaning that children can explore and play in a safe, online space to properly understand the benefits and potential pitfalls of being online.
Natterhub also includes weekly interactive lessons on all aspects of online safety for Years 1-6. These lessons aim to support your children in all aspects of their digital world and are aligned to the updated compulsory RSE National Curriculum, which makes online safety a compulsory element in primary school teaching. Children work their way through the Natterhub 'Badges of Honour', which track and assess their journey to become a
fully-fledged digital citizen! This includes:
● How to communicate appropriately using technology
● The importance of time on and off screens
● How to learn effectively, using the Internet
● To make intelligent choices about what they do online
● The importance of respectful online dialogue
● To use privacy settings to stay safe online
In the event of a school closure or a second lockdown, your child’s teacher will set a time to stream lessons remotely to the whole class. By taking part in Natterhub, your children are being taught how to live with and live through technology in order to be safe and thrive online.
