Online Safety Policies
Technology has been, and probably always will be, a part of our lives in the future. It is always being developed and improved at such a high speed which can make it difficult to keep up with, especially the keeping safe of our children. Now that there are more and more ways to access the Internet it is important we keep a close eye on our children’s safety online.
At school we educate the children on how to stay safe online, but it is important that you, as parents and carers, know the dangers and know how to combat them, teaching your child how to be safe online at home!
To show our commitment to online safety we propose to run an annual ‘Safer Internet Day’ (in February) in school to raise awareness of the risks the children might face online and what they can do keep safe. You will also receive an updated leaflet each year on the day to give you ideas and tips for at home. Alongside this, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) have a brilliant website called ‘thinkuknow’ which will provide you with further information on the subject.
