At St Thomas More, we use Project Evolve to teach aspects of Online Safety explicitly throughout the year. The toolkit content is founded on the UKCIS/DCMS “Education for a Connected World” competency framework. Project Evolve is an online based scheme of work which is constantly evolving to ensure the online safety messages that children and young people are being taught are delivered in a way that is more appropriate; more meaningful; that encourages reflection; that generates positive outcomes and are being updated regularly to reflect the changing world. 
Online Safety content is separated into eight strands which are taught throughout the year covering progression across all strands from Early Years to Year 6:

  • Self-image & identity
  • Online Relationships
  • Online Bullying
  • Health, Wellbeing & Lifestyle
  • Privacy & Security
  • Copyright & Ownership
  • Managing Online Information
