Online Safety

Dear Parents,

 Please find here some information about keeping your children safe online. You may think that your child is too young for you to be thinking about him / her using social networks and the internet, however the experts want to reach parents of children who are four years of age and upwards. We are all aware that the internet can be a hugely beneficial resource for children as learners but, equally, we know there have been worrying outcomes when parents have been unaware of their child's contacts on internet sites. We have an Online Safety Champion, Miss Lucas, who is available to offer guidance to further help, please contact her via the school office. Our Designated Safeguarding Leaders are also trained in all aspects of online safety. 

Parental Controls - Here is a useful guide to help you begin to ensure your devices are safe for your children.
