It is vital that all pupils stay safe online. In school, we teach children about all aspects of e-safety regularly.
We are aware that in today’s world children are able to access online resources, entertainment and games daily. Many of our older pupils have mobile phones and most of our pupils have games consoles/tablets/laptops which are connected to the internet. It is now common for older primary school children to communicate with each other via their devices (mobile phones, tablets and even consoles).
With this in mind we would like to signpost you to a fantastic website from the NSPCC. We work with the NSPCC regularly when they come into school to work with the pupils to help them keep safe and support us in teaching the pupils about their rights and what to do if they feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
The link below will take you to a webpage full of information about online safety – it is designed for parents and gives advice of how to monitor children online, how to setup parental controls and what to do if things go wrong.
We urge you to take time to read these and discuss them with your children. Many parents have reported to us that they have, for example, set up parental controls on PS4s or screen-time limits on tablets, which is fantastic – if you have not yet looked into this, the guides on the website below will show you how!
We hope that you find this useful and it helps you keep your child safe online.
