Online Safety

Online safety is a topic we teach the children in school as part of computing.

But as its such a large part of life now, being prepared and aware of safety on devices at home is vital,

The links from these pages are given as suggested starting places - there are many more sites available and help sheets to advise on online safety.

Here are some tips and useful links to help you :

  •  Explore online safety sites - There are lots of links  below to useful online safety sites for children. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
  •  Social Media - Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.
  •  Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
  •  Use a screen grab - on a PC press the 'prt sc' button and then paste into a word document. On a mac command- shift-3 – this allows a record of unwanted messages to be kept.
