E-Safety

With the ever expanding use of the internet, it is now more important than ever to stay safe online.

Social networking sites, online gaming, identity theft, hate sites and inaccurate information all pose risks to you and your child. Your digital footprint - information about you stored online - is often publicly searchable. As universities and employers are increasingly using the internet to research potential applicants, what would your child’s digital footprint say about them?

During assemblies and within the school curriculum we highlight the positive and negative aspects of the internet and ways in which pupils can protect themselves when online.

There are many different websites that can help you to understand the dangers of the internet, and many which provide advice and guidance on how to protect your child online. www.thinkuknow.co.uk is an excellent site that gives advice for pupils of all ages and parents. Other useful sites: www.childnet.com, www.digizen.org, www.cybermentors.org.uk.

Please view our E-Safety newsletters below for further advice and guidance.
