Internet safety

Welcome to our Online Safety page linking you to valuable information and some interactive fun for children. Online Safety covers a lot of issues from Online Bullying, to protecting yourself and your computer while using the internet, there are some links to help you with all aspects of staying safe online below.

We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Pupil Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies. We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.

We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies, and that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents.

Internet Matters

Everything we do is designed to help keep children safe online. We do that by giving parents what they need to have great conversations with their children to:

   Encourage them to behave safely online

   Help them identify potential risks

   Help limit the risks they may face online

   Know what to do and where to go if they need help.

Parents Technology Guide

Children will always want to own gadgets and tech products, and as they get older may ask for their own mobile phone or tablet. When buying devices for your child, it can be difficult to know what to look out for from an online safety perspective and what’s age appropriate. 

About our guide

Helps you choose

Most categories contain individual product reviews. There are so many to choose from that we’ve been selective in our reviews to cover those devices that are most popular with children, or that we think are most appropriate.

Organised by category

We’ve chosen five key categories – laptops and tablets, smartphones, games consoles, smart TVs and other gadgets. These cover the majority of devices that children may want to use and put all the information you need in one place.

Tells you what you need to know

There’s a lot of information out there and it can be difficult to sift through, so for each category we’ve brought together the key e-safety considerations for parents when selecting a device.

All about e-safety

Our primary concern is getting you up to speed with what’s available and helping you decide what’s a good purchase with your child in mind. We focus on giving you the right information to keep them safe online when they’re using different devices.

NSPCC Share Aware

Abuse robs children of their childhood. Without help, the scars of abuse can last a lifetime. And as devastating as it can be for the child, society pays a heavy price too.

Abuse changes childhood, but so can we

Child abuse is preventable - not inevitable. And it’s up to each of us to do everything possible to keep childhood safe from abuse, so children can grow up healthy and thrive. That’s why we're here and drives what we do. So as long as there’s abuse – we will fight for every childhood. Join us.

Parents Guide To Games

Games can sometimes be a tricky thing to get your head around, especially if you don't play them yourself. But the benefits are huge. Games can help young children to read; encourage teamwork and co-operation amongst the whole family; and teach valuable problem solving skills.

Not to mention the fact they can be a great deal of fun, too. If you know which games are right for your family.

That's why we created the Parent's Guide to Games, a one stop shop where families can find everything they need to get started.

Parents Guide To Apps

Although child-friendly apps can make using the internet a more accessible and enjoyable experience, the thousands of apps available for different types of people mean it’s important to make sure children use appropriate ones.

This guide maps some of the most common apps available and highlights those that might create risky situations for children, such as unintentionally revealing personal information, stranger danger and generating large bills through in-app purchasing.

Protection On Smartphones

At the start of the 2014-2015 school year, 59% of UK parents reported that they planned on getting a smartphone for their children. Smartphones have plenty of apps to entertain children, help them with their homework, and more. But just like anything else that’s connected to the internet, parents need to make sure that their kids are safe while using smartphones. Here are some tips on how they can do that.
