E-Safety Information for Parents
E-Safety is fundamental in our quest to keep children safe- at home and school. Regular assemblies focus upon how children should use the internet safely and the risks if children have unrestricted access to sites they are too young for. If a site has an age restriction, then it is there for the safety of all children (popular social networking sites like Facebook, Instagram etc. have a recommended age of 13+).
Cyber-bullying is a very real and current issue, we discuss this with our children in school regularly. However, the more access a child has to social networking sites the greater the chance that conversations between children can become unregulated.
As a school it is our duty to advise and share concerns. The internet has so many positives but the internet can also open the door to a world our children should be protected from. We hope this page provides you with information to help you to help your children stay safe online.
The NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking.
