Online Safety Day
Thank you to those parents who came along to the parent online safety session. I had great feedback from parents who attended to say how useful and informative it was. It is a shame that more parents didn’t come along. The children also enjoyed informative workshops about how to keep themselves safe online. Staff had online safety training too.
Here are some of the posters we have made about cyber-bullying.
A reminder that we also have a Pupil Acceptable Use form – also known as an Pupil Health Agreement form that pupils sign.
- Talk to your child about what they’re up to online. Be a part of their online life
- Watch Thinkuknow films and cartoons with your child ( see website above)
- Set boundaries in the online world just as you would in the real world
- Keep all equipment that connects to the internet in a family space.
- Use parental controls on devices that link to the internet, such as the TV, laptops, computers, games consoles and mobile phones
Our pupils often use the internet as part of their learning, and have regular lessons on e-safety to help them know how to keep safe online. Pupils in school are always supervised when using the internet.
