Internet Safety (E-safety)

While the internet is a creative, exciting resource, it is important we help our children to navigate it safely and so we work closely with parents to ensure our children's safety and security online.

Devices such as ipods and kindles that were previously not able to access the internet now are, making the opportunities for children to message and connect with others and access content online greater than ever.

Tips For Parents:

  • Keep up to date by using 1 or 2 safety sites.
  • Take an interest in what your children like to do on the internet.
  • Talk about your concerns and online behaviour expectations.
  • Remind about responsibilities and consequences.
  • Set your own ‘Home’ rules about usage and screen time.
  • Use Filtering and Monitoring guides to protect devices.

Tips For Children

  • NEVER share passwords or personal data.
  • NEVER share any photos that they wouldn’t share with grandparents.
  • ONLY talk to friends, NOT online strangers.
  • Know that, what you share today… MIGHT embarrass you tomorrow.

It is equally essential that we, for our part, provide children with basic strategies for managing their own security online. E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our Information Communication and Technology Policy

Parents can find out more about how they can help their children to stay safe by accessing these websites.
