Online Safety Information
You can use your computer, mobile phone or tablet for lots of fun things and to make lots of new friends from all over the world.
There are many positives associated with the Internet and children are increasingly using the Internet for education and play.
We believe that Online safety education is a crucial element of the curriculum and an essential part of young people’s development. To raise awareness of the issues that children and young people face online today, the school carries out many age appropriate activities, including participating in the ‘Safer Internet Day’ organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre.
The UK Safer Internet Centre website contains information which is very useful for parents to support the work done in school and ensure that our children keep safe whilst using the ever-expanding growth of mobile technology.
This section of our website will provide you with links to really useful advice on how to be careful when you use the Internet and some great tips to keep safe. If you are worried about anything you see online or people are asking you questions about where you live or saying nasty things to you please speak to your parents or teacher or follow any of the links below for help and advice.
Parent Info is collaboration between CEOP and Parent Zone and provides information to parents and carers about their children’s wellbeing and resilience, internet safety and a wide range of other topic matters like sex, relationship and body image.
I bet you probably like to use the computer for fun. The Think U Know website will help you go on the Internet in a safe way and tell who to talk to if you are worried. You can also find out about Lee & Kim’s adventures or watch Hector and his friends learning to use computers safely! If you want to talk to someone else you can call ‘Childline’, which is a place where people who are nice can help you.
