E-Safety is very important for our children of today. We take e-safety very seriously and aim to deliver high quality curriculum which will equip them with the skills and the integrity needed to stay safe online in the modern world. If you have any questions or require any further support please contact the school.
DO YOU KNOW HOW TO HELP YOUR CHILD STAY SMART?
For advice and support on setting up parental controls, adjusting, privacy settings, understanding social networks and more, visit the NSPCC website.
NSPCC visited the school in February 2020 and held a KS1 & KS2 assembly to share important information about the work of the NSPCC and remind the children on how to keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries. The children also took part in a voluntary fundraising activity and raised just over £2,000.00 which is fantastic.
Safer Internet Day - Tuesday 05 February 2019
On Tuesday 5 February we celebrated Safer Internet Day with a whole school assembly and activities in class. The children were keen to talk about the media, including films and video games, which they enjoy at home and so we thought it might be timely to remind them and yourselves of some of the places that you can get advice to support this entertainment.
The team behind Safer Internet Day themselves have created a pack for parents and carers “to help you talk to your children about having a positive and safe time online... including conversation starters, a factsheet, family pledge card and more.” They have also produced a short film for parents and carers to accompany this pack and serve as a conversation starter.. https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/safer-internet-day-2019/education-packs/activities-parents-and-carers
As I’m sure you are all aware, age restrictions on games and films should always be followed, and a really useful website for up-to-date warnings, reviews and information about games and films that your children may come in contact with (including Fortnite) can be found at https://www.commonsensemedia.org/
