Keeping Your Child Safe Online

E-safety is an integral part of children's education in today's digital world and is embedded in their learning at school. Our curriculum in school covers all key aspects of online safety, delivered during computing and PSHE lessons.

 

We also want to help parents and children improve their own understanding of e-safety issues so they can learn to use the internet and all digital media in a safe and secure way. Digital technologies are creating the world around us and we must all take responsibility to educate and help children safely navigate the digital space. Online safety for children should be addressed and approached with a positive and welcoming mindset. It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

The resources below provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child friendly way and set up age appropriate parental controls on digital devices.
