Online Safety

Children have more access than ever to the internet - through mobile phones, tablets, gaming, apps and social media. With this greater connectivity there are obvious advantages. We simply could not have got through recent years without websites and applications such as Seesaw, Zoom and Microsoft Teams. But for all the benefits that use of the internet can bring, there are obvious risks - particularly concerning our safety - in particular the safety of the youngest within our community.

How confident are you that you children are safe online?

This page has useful guidance and a number of links to websites and video clips that can help you and your family stay safe when using the internet. Our lessons within school will help children to understand the dangers associated with using the internet, but with your help, understanding and support, our children will be much more likely to put this into practice.

Our Safety Centre

The section below is from the 'Our Safety Centre' website. We have linked to an area of the website that contains many downloadable safety guides. Unlike our safety guides that we share on our weekly newsletter, these guides give you step by step instructions on how to set up security settings for a number of different apps, games consoles and online platforms. The Our Safety Centre website itself has many resources which will help you and your children stay safe online. The website is split into sections that provide guides to help you to block, report and stay safe. You can search by app and there are video and picture guides which show you how to control many aspects, such as who can comment on a tiktok video or how to report and block a user on WhatsApp.
