E-Safety

 

If you are a parent or carer, we hope you will find the web links below useful. Please read our e-safety policy.

 

If you have got any concerns, questions or you would like more information about e-safety at school or at home, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Mr Thoburn is our Computing Coordinator and Mr Outterside is our designated safeguarding lead.

 

Check out the Parent Zone website, with lots of advice and courses for Parents and Carers.

 

Also check out the Digital Parenting magazines, which are full of advice and articles about the digital world. Very soon we hope to have hard copies available in the main entrance of the school!

 

 

E-Safety Within Our Curriculum

 

It is becoming increasingly important that our children are kept safe when they are online. Therefore we teach the children about e-safety every half term. We also teach about e-safety when situations arise or when we feel it would benefit the children at that moment of time.

 

Below you will find an overview of the e-safety topics taught across the school.

Parental controls

 

Parental controls can be used to block upsetting or harmful content, control in-app purchases or manage how long your child spends online. And the good news is parental controls are really easy to set up.

Monitoring your child on the internet

 

Children spend too much time staring at screens and are exposed to a lot of inappropriate material. It is important that you manage their screen time and control the quality of the media they engage with. There are various apps you can download to control what your child sees and how long they can spend on their devices.
