Online Safety

 

We know that it is important for us to support our children in ensuring they can use the internet and apps in an appropriate manner and keep themselves safe online. We have online safety officers in each class and use the Thinkuknow materials with our children to promote specific messages.

 

We monitor children's in-school computer use through the Securus system which sends an alert if any inappropriate material is accessed during the school day. If a Securus Report is generated the child is spoken to and parents/carers are informed if we are concerned about their child's use of the internet.

You can find our Online Safety Policy in our Policy Section.

We ask that parents/carers think carefully about how they share their child's image on Facebook and other Social Media. We like our audience members to be 'in the moment' when watching a performance or attending a school event, but also recognise that some people enjoy photographing or videoing their child. Images should not be posted on parents/carers Social Media if they include other children.

Some apps/websites have an age restriction of 13+ years, but we know that it is also useful for our parents to be able to access some guidance so we have provided some links and materials here alongside the materials we ourselves use in school. 

The 02 shop also offers free support to parents with parental controls on phones and ipads and you do not have to be a customer to access this.
