E-safety in our school
Follow the links for some useful parental safety information.
To support the learning in the classroom, you can use these tip sheets and provide them for parents to enable them to gain better understanding and start a dialogue with their children at home. The tip sheets include topics like cyberbullying, online security, smart searching, respecting creative work and many others.
Recent research has shown that children spend far longer online than their parents think. This research also confirms that some children are bullied whilst online, or see harmful or inappropriate content. This clearly highlights the need to educate children on potential dangers of the web. In the first instance, parents have a role in discussing with their children how they can stay safe online. However, for an added layer of security, it’s worth investigating the parental controls offered by your internet provider.
Most online service providers offer some safety features that can help you manage access to age-inappropriate content, report concerns or protect privacy.
