Keeping safe online

Internet Safety Our children love to use the internet specially to play games and to communicate with their friends. The way they start using computers and the guidance they are given at this young age can set them on the right path to being safer in later life. At our school we ensure that our children are taught the basic tips of Internet Safety in every year group. We recently had an Internet Safety Day. It was run by Paul Hay who is an expert in Internet Safety. Paul worked with the teachers to lead an assembly and run class lessons. For the younger years, we use a cartoon which was created by the Child Exploitation and Online Protection agency (CEOPs).

Paul has provided links to useful sites to learn more about Internet Safety and watch other related videos. Here is the site Paul is also happy for parents to contact him with any questions you may have.

“Digital Parenting” magazine An organisation called Parentzone have created a great magazine for parents to help them understand how young people use the internet and provide help.
