Online Safety

Internet Safety Advice

 

Whilst we are still under stricter measures and it is recommended that homework remain online. Whilst there are many positive aspects to the time we are spending online the increased screen time can also put your child more at risk of:

  • Online bullying
  • Abuse and grooming
  • Seeing inappropriate content
  • Not getting enough sleep or exercise. 

 

 

10 easy steps to protect your family and your child

  1. Set parent controls on devices and check all your permission settings
  2. Make sure your child is doing school work when they should be
  3. Talk to your child about staying safe online - you can also access e-safety resources to help with this on Internet Matters, Purple Mash and CEOP.
  4. Agree rules on screen time
  5. Encourage daily non-screen activities 
  6. Do not allow your child to access online streaming apps in their bedroom or when you are not present 
  7. Work in the same room as your child when they are online
  8. Check their mobile devices regularly
  9. Remind them of the NSPCC safety rules and who they can talk to if they are worried. 
  10. Look at the pupils' e-safety links on the school website together
