Keeping up to date with what your children are doing online can seem daunting. Technology is constantly advancing and sometimes parents feel that their children know more about the internet than they do.
The use of technology in the home is now common place from tablets, laptops, phones and gaming consoles just to mention a few and on many occasions this can be taking place away from the eyes of adults.
Take a look at the links below which give you some simple, practical and easy advice on the steps you can take as a parent to keep them as safe as possible.
If you have any concerns around E-Safety then please feel free to contact Mrs Wordsworth, our Computing Lead, within school.
This year in the UK, Safer Internet Day explores reliability online. The internet has an amazing range of information and opportunities online, but how do we separate fact from fiction?
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated globally with the slogan:
Together for a better internet.
As our children spend more time online due to lockdown and remote learning, it is more important than ever to ensure we equip them with the skills they need to make informed decisions and safe choices.
As part of Safer Internet Day 2021, we want to support our pupils and their families in navigating the online world.
Please see the new resources we have uploaded below.

How is my child protected within school?
E-safety is a high priority within school and an element of this is included within all of the Computing units of work delivered across the year. In addition to this, we also have assemblies focusing on
E-Safety and E-safety days, which take place annually. Within school we have a contract with an IT provider who manages our firewall to block any unsuitable material being viewed by the children whilst acceptable use policies are in place for all pupils and staff.
