At Christ the King, we strive to empower our children to become critical thinking, safe and responsible digital citizens. Using the UK Council for Internet Safety’s (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World”, our children become well-versed in the following aspects of online education:
- Self-image and Identity;
- Online relationships;
- Online reputation;
- Online bullying;
- Managing online information;
- Health, wellbeing and lifestyle;
- Privacy and security;
- Copyright and ownership
Here at CTK, we also recognise the importance of empowering Parents and Carers in an ever-changing online world.

E-safety is an integral part of children’s education in today’s digital world and is embedded in their learning at school.
As a parent/carer you’ll know how important the internet is to children – they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. But the technology children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online – such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
To try and help parents/carers with the fast moving and changing world of internet and social media we’ve suggested a few internet sites.
