Online Safety Guidance for Parents

Supporting children to stay safe whilst online is an essential element of safeguarding children when using technologies such as computers, tablets, mobile phones, social media or games consoles. The Internet is an important and necessary part of everyday life, so children must be supported to learn how to manage and respond to risk and build online resilience.

At school we embed online safety within the curriculum throughout the whole school and raise awareness of the importance of safe and responsible internet use amongst pupils. School internet use is monitored and pupils are supported in reading and understanding the school’s Acceptable Use Agreement.

At home, it really is essential to talk to your child about online safety to avoid the risks your child can face online such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content.
