Online Safety

Our Online Safety Lead is Mr. Ben Langford

 

What is Online Safety? Online Safety refers to child protection and safeguarding of both children and adults in the digital world.  It is about learning to understand and use technologies in a safe, positive way, also about supporting children and adults to develop safe online behaviours (both in and out of school). The Internet is part of children’s lives these days. It offers lots of educational opportunities, helps them keep in touch with friends and family and opens up a world of information and experiences. Whether on a computer at school, a laptop at home, a tablet, a games console or mobile phone, children are increasingly accessing the Internet in a variety of ways.

So far this year we have:

 

  • The police have come into school to speak to parents at the welcome to KS2 night.
  • Every year group has had Online Safety lessons.
  • Updated Online Safety Policy.
  • Positively increased our Social Media presence and use this as a forum to pass information and training to parents/carers.
  • Started an Online Safety Council.
  • Had PCSOs in to speak to the KS2 children.
  • KS1 have had an Online Safety assembly.
  • At parents evening statistics were present for all parents/carers.

There is a lot of good advice on keeping safe on the Internet.

Online safety conversation “icebreakers”
 
O2 have joined forces with the NSPCC on a mission to help all children and their families in the UK stay safe online. And together, we’re offering useful tools, support and guidance to help parents and carers have conversations with their children about their online lives.
 
Please follow this link and enter your contact details onto their form. This will sign you up to their regular emails which will support you to have e-safety conversations with your children. Often you need an 'ice breaker' and this is exactly what these emails set out to give you so that you can confidently approach these sometimes difficult conversations.
