E-Safety

Click here for the hand-outs from the eSafety talk for parents by Graham Jones

We take E-safety very seriously in school and run an on-going program of age appropriate discussions and exercises to help equip children for the dangers they may encounter using todays internet technologies. The upper juniors recently had a visit from our local PCSO who discussed both dangers and rules for using the internet.  Click here for a summary of these discussions.

All children participated in our Safer Internet day on February 7th 2017. Children were give age appropriate information about how to stay safe on line. Click here for the Childnet information sheet designed to help you protect your children.  

All children from Year 1 to Year 6 have access to the school learning platform.  This is a specially designed area of our web site that allows children to use email, forums, blogs, and wikis in a safe and child friendly environment.  As they move through the school the children are introduced to the various functions which are internal to our school only, providing a safe introduction to facilities such as social networking where they can learn to be responsible and safe internet users.  

There are a number of things you can do at home to help your child stay safe : 

  • talk to your child about the dangers posed by the internet
  • be aware of the minimum age for account holders on social media sites - these are there to protect your children 
  • tell them what they should do if they become worried or concerned
  • explain that anything shared online or by mobile phone could end up being seen by anyone
  • understand what your child does online and know which websites they visit
  • use filtering software such as Open DNS to block inappropriate sites
  • install "ad blocker" software to filter inappropriate adverts on Google / YouTube / games sites
  • use Parental Controls to restrict the times of access and the type of sites
  • look at some of the links below which provide additional information for parents and carers, as well as fun games to help children learn about safe internet use
  • talk about internet safety rules ... click here
