Keeping Children Safe on the Internet

The virtual world of the Internet is a great place to learn, play games and get useful information; it is an important part of modern life. However, like the real world, it also poses many dangers particularly for young children; parents can find it hard to know how to protect their child in this world.
The UK Safer Internet Centre gives excellent advice for parents and carers with tools and strategies to keep children safe online available from the website link below under these headings:
Having ongoing conversations with your children about staying safe
online
Using safety tools on social networks and other online services,
eg Facebook privacy settings

Understanding devices and the parental control tools on offer in
a Parents' Guide to Technology

Letter from the Headteacher

I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware of the link to some really good guidance in relation to keeping our children safe on line when using social media, internet etc.

Recently there have been a number of concerns in relation to children’s safety whilst playing on line in particular an app called Momo.

In school we do a lot of work with your children about keeping themselves safe whilst on line and we hope by providing the attached information you will feel confident to talk to your children about their on line activity and to support them in keeping safe.

Yours sincerely

PM Walker
