ESafety Zone

 

We’d like to draw your attention to INTERNET SAFETY.

We’ve put this page together to help you help your child stay safe online.

Please read our Computing Technology Acceptable Use Policy, which is on our policies page, and you may also find our leaflet ‘Is your child safe online?’ a useful guide as a parent.

 

9th February 2016 was Safer Internet Day.

We’ve sent home a ‘Conversation Starters‘ leaflet to parents in all year groups.
We have also sent a letter and surveys home for parents, carers and children in Year 5 and Year 6.

 

 

MEETING: Parents, carers of children in Year 5 & 6 are encouraged to come to a meeting about internet dangers
on Thursday 17th March at 5.30pm.

The NSPCC’s Net Aware website also has a guide to the social networks that children use.
It helps you stay up-to-date and keep your child safe in today’s digital world.
On it, you can tap in the name of the network such as Minecraft and gain a real understanding of the content of the network and what children and adults think about it.

We also highly recommend you visit a website called www.thinkuknow.co.uk

Part of this website is addressed specifically to parents.
Once you have had an opportunity to have a look yourself you may wish to visit the site with your child as there is also a specific area for children.

It’s a great site, aimed at teaching children of all ages how to avoid dangers on the internet, in particular:
