Online safety

Staying safe online is one of the most important things a child can learn today. With all the different technological devices around, making sure your child understands how to stay safe online is paramount. At school we use the internet for a variety of web based tasks including research.

We understand that the internet can be entertaining, informative and make it easier to communicate with peers, meaning children may want to explore this. This exploration is not harmful in itself as long as children are supervised. As soon as children become unsupervised, this is when they are open to inappropriate material and people, potentially putting them at risk.

As a school we recommend that Key Stage 1 and 2 children should always have a responsible adult with them when online.
Children all need to understand the internet and how they can use it positively, safely and to their benefit.

As you are the child's parent/carer, you are the most ideal person to help them to understand how to use the internet safely, avoid potential problems and get the most out of it.

To help, here are some links to sites to help you develop your child's understanding.
