We all have fun online and we want it to stay that way. If you make sure you follow our simple rules in school and some simple e-safety advice out of school you will be well on the way to enjoying the wonderful world wide web (wwww!).
Our rules for internet safety in school are:
If you want to learn more about staying safe on-line then the sites below are both full of information and fun!
In school we have filters and control over the different devices we use; however we know that instead of restricting pupil use, it is better to educate children on how to safely use the internet and what to do if they run into problems.
The school teaches online safety as part of the computing curriculum with reminders before online topics are taught. We also use Internet safety day as a whole school refresher.
Online safety guidance:
These resources provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:
If you have any safeguarding concerns then please contact your child's class teacher in the first instance or Miss Jollands, the Designated Safeguarding Lead, on firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of our internet safety workin school in Feb 2019, we have become aware that some children are playing online games where additional user generated content may be unsuitable for their age. One game in particular that was mentioned was 'Granny'.
Parents need to know that Granny is a free-to-play indie horror game with grotesque art, blood and jump scares that are too intense for young children. PGEI's rating for this game is 12+ for the following: Frequent/Intense Horror/Fear Themes, Infrequent/Milk Realistic Violence. Granny can be accessed through the Roblox app, as well as an app download.
