Online Safety

Keeping our children safe online is a priority for us.

In school, we teach the children about internet safety throughout the year through their computing lessons, PSHE lessons and in assemblies.

On this page you will find helpful information about how parents and carers can develop safe use of the internet at home too.

Have a look at the weblinks below for information about keeping children safe on the internet.

 

This website has a range of activities to do with your child and lots of information about setting controls on different devices at home: www.kidsmart.org.uk/parents/

The following webpage has excellent information about ideas for keeping your child safe and some statistics about what sites some children are accessing: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Primary/

Our team of Designated Safeguarding Leads, or Mr Mare our Computing Lead would be happy to talk to you in more detail if you have any questions.

 As a whole school community, we use the National Online Safety Hub which has lots of excellent resources and tips for parents and children:
