Welcome to Natterhub!
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 digital world. 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 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!
● 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
By using the Natterhub platform, your children are being taught how to live with and live through technology in order to be safe and thrive online.
E-safety framework journey
The UNCIS framework is embedded within Natterhub sessions that are delivered to the children. All strands are covered within our KS2 curriculum and children are taught about what an online identity is, respectful online relationships, what an online reputation is and how to report negative or unkind behaviour.
