Online Safety Evidence

Autumn 1, Online Safety: Self Image and Identity 

Y1 Autumn 1 Computing Evidence

Year 6


Can I identify and critically evaluate online content relating to gender, race, religion, disability, culture and other groups, and explain why it is important to challenge and reject inappropriate representations online?


In Year 6, we discussed what stereotypes are and how they can be helpful and unhelpful. We spoke about what gender stereotypes are and how they are not always accurate. For example, lots of girls in the class do not like pink! We thought about how ads can be targeted at people online and how we felt about it.



We designed adverts for the same toy, with each group focused on a different stereotype.

Year 5

In Year 5, we looked into how online profiles can be improved. We listed six top tips for people creating an online profile. Our tips help people to share their identity safely within games, apps and websites. We also looked at online relationships. During this session, we reminded ourselves of who we can talk to in school and talked about our safeguarding paws. We thought about reporting routes and also what support means to us.


In our third session, we were in role as digital detectives. We filled in one t-shirt thinking about what information we would share with family and friends, and then looked at the information that would be safe to share with a stranger. 


Online bullying was the focus of our fourth session. We discussed what banter means and shared situations where a comment made would not be banter. 


In our final two sessions, we looked at fake news and privacy/security. By looking at managing our passwords, we summarised our learning so that we can stay safe online. 

Year 2

Can I explain how others may look and act differently online?

Can I give examples of what might make someone feel happy, sad, scared, excited and worried online?


We discussed what the phrase, online safety means and how important it is to keep ourselves safe, online.

Mrs Taylor/Mr Worthington, told us all about the internet 'back in the day' and how they would have to dial in to the internet before they could use it, compared to how quickly we can access the internet on devices today.



We spoke about what an Avatar is and created an example of Mrs Taylor

We created our own Avatar (paper copy and online)

We played a 'Guess the Avatar game'

We looked at different scenarios and thought about how they would make us feel.
