Internet Safety

Most children in our school possess or have regular access to a range digital technologies at home.  It is essential that you guide and monitor your child/children’s online behaviour in order to protect their own safety and well-being as well as to prevent them from behaving in a way that is hurtful or threatening towards others.  To this end, we run an e-safety feature in our fortnightly newsletters (starting with issue 243 - 5 March 2018).  Please refer to the Newsletter section of this website.  We are also happy to point parents in the direction of the #Ditto Magazines which we believe provide excellent guidance on safer internet use.

The world of online safety continues to develop and improve at a fast pace and new and innovative resources are becoming available to support our children in the online world all of the time.  I would like to bring to your attention the Get Safe Online website at https://www.getsafeonline.org/ which has a wealth of resources available to support parents and children with a number of online safety issues including device security, gaming, sharing and privacy. 

'Be Internet Legends'

On Internet Safety day (Feb 2019) we launched the 'Be Internet Legends' programme to our children.  Designed by Google in association with Parentzone this is an excellent starting point for lots of discussions about online safety.

The learning that we will be doing in school is divided in to five pillars or themes: sharp, alert, secure, kind and brave.  The game takes you through four different worlds that present you with different scenarios and questions to get you thinking about how to stay safe online, these are: Mindful, Reality River, Kind Kingdom and Tower of Treasure.  We hope parents will find time to sit down and play the game as a whole family.
