e-Safety Information and Links
In school, we have regular e-safety activities and lessons to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves and others safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:
- Explore e-safety sites– There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children at the bottom of this page. Why not browse through them with your children?
- Facebook / Instagram / etc– Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so pupils should not be using them.
- Keep your computer in a shared area– Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
- Regularly checking their phone/tablet – Regularly checking your child’s phone or tablet helps monitor their activities on devices that are often kept private.
