Online safety in school and advice for parents and carers
Unsure where to find information or resources to help keep your child safe online-click HERE.
Children find internet communication and social networking fun and safe most of the time but things can go wrong. As a parent or carer you can help protect your child by being aware of their internet use and which devices they are using for this and talking together about online relationships.

The UK Council for child internet safety has created this handy help sheet if you have concerns or worries - download here. The anti-bullying alliance has created an online guide to help parents of KS2 children and you can access this by clicking here.
In school we have age appropriate e-safety rules and guidelines that we ask all children to agree and adhere to. These can be found in the School Policies section of the website. We also deliver regular e-safety lessons to our children.
There are a number of websites that you and your child may find useful when thinking about e-safety. Please find links below.
PARENTS PLEASE BE AWARE THAT FOR SAFEGUARDING REASONS CHILDREN UNDER 13 SHOULD NOT HAVE FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS.
If school is aware that a child under 13 is using Facebook, we will inform parents and contact Facebook.
Does your child know the SMART rules? Look at the picture below and help your child know what to do when they are on the internet.
