Parent Resources (please look at the sidebar to the right of this page too)
To try and help parents with the fast-moving and changing world of internet and social media we’ve suggested a few internet sites on the right of this page which are fantastic resources, They contain information on different types of social media and how to help keep children safe.
Childnet also produces a leaflet for parents which you can download here. We have a new e-safety-parent-checklist for parents to help their children stay safe.
As part of your child’s curriculum and the development of computer skills, we provide access to the internet only in teacher supervised lessons. We strongly believe that the use of the web and email is hugely worthwhile and an essential tool for children as they grow up in the modern world. But because there are always concerns about children having access to undesirable materials, we have taken positive steps to deal with this risk in school. Our school internet access provider operates a filtering system that restricts access to inappropriate materials.
At the start of the school year, each class discusses how we can all stay safe online and the dangers we may face on the internet. We then ask every child in KS2 to sign an Acceptable Use Agreement so that we know they have read and understood our school’s rules on staying safe. We also have an Acceptable Use Agreement for our younger children and you can download a copy here.
