Online Safety

**** New Information **** 

 

Online Safety Update – Rick and Morty

It has come to light that some children in school have been watching a cartoon show named ‘Rick and Morty’. This program can be accessed via Netflix (adult section) and is rated 15. The maturity rating is due to the language, sexual references, violence, injury detail and drug misuse that is shown throughout the program. Having looked into the program myself, I can confirm that the content is not age appropriate for any of the children within our setting due to the explicit scenes and language used. I ask that you please check your child’s device or Netflix account.

Helping to keep your children safe online.

A guide to become a safer parent online.

Children’s use of the internet is becoming more mobile and interactive offering young people more opportunities to interact and meet new people, so it’s never been more important to make sure you are helping your child stay safe in the digital world. 

 

Online Safety

We feel as though the online world offers amazing opportunities for our children but unfortunately it also brings elements of potential risk.  For Parents & Carers, making sense of the online world can appear to be an enormous challenge.  Unlike previous generations, the online environment is an integral part of children’s lives and therefore we can no longer consider their wellbeing or safety without also considering their relationship to technology.  However, staying safe online is fundamentally about behaviours rather than the technology itself and if approached from this perspective, we can begin to gain confidence to support our children.

Please see the link below to find support and guidance for parents and carers on how to keep children safe online.

Internet Safety Day 2017

On Monday 27th February 2017, the whole school celebrated internet safety day. The children participated in a range of activities throughout the day based on the theme "Be the Change: Unite together!" During the morning lessons, the children explored a range of scenarios based on cyber bullying, sharing person information, the rules and regulations for posting images online and what to do if you see something online that you are not happy with. Following this, the children then created posters advising children how to keep safe online. During the afternoon lessons, children mixed year groups in order to complete a range of tasks. In Year 2/4 the children planned and created their own videos focusing on how to keep safe online and these videos can be seen below.

Staying Safe Online

The range and complexity of today's technology can often seem bewildering for many adults, particularly with children who may seem to be permanently 'connected'.  Parents and carers are key partners in helping to safeguard our children when using technologies such as laptops, tablets, Smartphones and games consoles - as such it is useful to agree some ground rules to support their safe use. Set out your expectations (and why). e.g. when they can go online and for how long (don't forget, most gaming consoles now use the internet as well).  

 

Please use the links below to help your children understand how to stay safe online; communication between parent and child is key in order that they feel confident to know what to do if something online worries them or something goes wrong.
