The internet plays a vital role in our lives, offering valuable tools and resources when used responsibly. At our school, e-safety holds a high priority. We ensure that all children receive appropriate advice and guidance throughout the academic year on how to stay safe online.
To reinforce e-safety awareness, we regularly share reminders and provide links to resources like www.thinkyouknow.co.uk (CEOP – Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) with our community. We encourage students to report any online activities that make them feel vulnerable or unsafe.
For parents and carers, we promote a range of online safety resources, including handouts on various topics such as gaming safely, phishing, finding a balance with screen time, managing your child’s digital footprint, and more. We also provide guidance on parental controls for platforms like Amazon Prime and Netflix.
To ensure your child’s online safety at home, we recommend visiting www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents for additional information and support.
When it comes to social media and apps, we can provide specific advice for parents and carers. For example, we highlight that Facebook requires individuals to be at least 13 years old to create an account and provide guidance on how to address underage accounts. We also offer guidance on safety and privacy settings for various social media platforms, Snapchat safety, Minecraft, reporting on Twitter, TikTok advice, guidance on popular games.
For any inquiries related to e-safety, please contact school and speak with Mr Bottley.
We are committed to ensuring a safe online environment for our students and providing parents and carers with the necessary resources and support to navigate the digital world responsibly.
