Online Safety Updates

Online Safety Presentation March 2019
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who attended the online safety presentation on 12th March.
The presentation by Julia Briggs from eLIM was praised by many attendees. 

Parents realised that there was no great mystery to ensuring their children’s online safety. It was simply a matter of good parenting; setting family rules, deciding where children could go and where they would not be allowed, enjoying family participation in activities and engaging in ongoing conversations about the “digital world” – just as they do in the real world! Additionally, Julia supported the school in raising awareness of adding parental restrictions to online devices and alerting parents to the current areas of concern.

We will upload as many useful resources as we can on this page, to help you keep your children safe online.
ThinkUKnow Jessie and Friends Videos
CEOP have released a series of videos for you to watch with your children, to enable the start of conversations about online safety. The earlier that you can begin to have conversations with your children, the better. It can be difficult to start the conversation after something has gone wrong online, because children may be worried that they are going to get into trouble - having open conversations early should encourage your child to ask for help if something unexpected or unpleasant happens to them online.

Social Media Use
 
Vodafone in association with Andersen Press have produced an online version of Goldilocks - a modern twist on the classic fairy tale which offers a fun and accessible way for parents to discuss responsible social media use with their younger children. It highlight the dangers of oversharing selfies and chasing after "likes" in a lighthearted way. We will use this resource in online safety lessons in school.
