Online Safety is about staying safe on the internet. Internet enabled devices such as computers, tablets and smart phones, watches and more up to date technology offer lots of new opportunities, but also present new risks.

In school we proactively filter internet access to ensure that the children are not exposed to any inappropriate or adult material. If you are a customer of BT, Sky, TalkTalk or Virgin Media you can follow this guide;

5 Internet Safety Tips for Kids

E-Safety Tips for Parents: 6-10

Our children are savvy. They know how to use technology often better than we do. The websites that they are interested in change so frequently that we lose touch with what they are doing. They become fashionable to their peer groups, especially the social networking sites. Also we are finding that many KS2 pupils have Instagram accounts. May we remind you that “Instagram” states: You must be at least 13 years old. Also please check the Pegi rating for games that they are playing, remember 18 is there for a reason, it has inappropriate content and aimed at over 18.

You can find an age-appropriate social network that your kids will love and you can approve of. Your kids will like them better than Facebook, and you’ll rest easy knowing they’re protected.

Tips for talking to your child about online safety

Talk to your child about their favourite websites. Remember to start the conversation on a positive foot. This can lead into a chat about online safety.
If your child loves to use social networking sites, teach them about protecting their personal information by thinking about what they are sharing and who they are sharing it with. These sites encourage them to provide their correct identity. So it is important that you show them how to use privacy settings, and how to block and report – and advise them to only accept friend requests from people they know in real life.
Remind your child that showing respect for others online is just as important as showing it offline. Encourage them to think before they post and encourage them to show positive behaviour online.
There are lots of ways you can advise your child about cyberbullying, if they are worried remind them to save the evidence and to always tell an adult they trust if something upsets them online. Most sites have an internet safety button they can use to report any incidents. We also have one at the bottom of our school website.
