Keeping your child safe online

Safer Internet Day 2019 - film for parents and carers

We understand the importance of keeping safe online as the internet continues to evolve. We take part in Safer Internet Day each year. Below is a short film raising awareness of Safer Internet Day 2019 with parents and carers and encouraging conversations to be had with children about the internet. A useful pack for parents and carers can be downloaded here: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/safer-internet-day-2019/education-packs/activities-parents-and-carers

We are constantly reminding ourselves about how to stay safe online. In our assemblies we have been thinking about the importance of using the Internet the internet safely.

The children have also played a part in creating our E-Safety charter outlined below. This is displayed around school, and children agree to follow this charter when using ICT and the internet around school.

There are some further links below to help you to keep your children safe when they are online.

If something has happened to your child which has made them feel worried/unsafe, or have been a victim or witnessed online abuse and is concerned, we advise parents to call 101 (Police Non-emergency number) or report it on the CEOP website - https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/
