Online Safety Briefing

Please scan the QR code to access a link to view our recent online safety briefing.
The briefing was delivered by Paul Gerrie from Amazing ICT. Paul talks about online safety relevant to our children and families. This includes setting up home controls and restrictions, information about popular apps and gaming platforms that families may use at home. It also provides advice about what signs to look out for should online issues be affecting your child(ren) and who to contact for help/advice.

We have signed up to receive a weekly newsletter from 'National Online Safety' which we will share on this page.

You can access all the guides here:

Does your child use:

  1. A mobile phone
  2. The internet
  3. Social networking sites (such as Facebook, Youtube, Bebo or Twitter)
  4. Skype or other instant messaging services 
  5. Gaming with chat feature
If the answer is yes, then your child is potentially at risk.
 
As parents and carers, our natural desire is to keep our children safe. From learning to cross the road, ride a bike or swim, parents have to teach, guide and support their children – the online world is no different. The best ways to defend against online risks are openness, awareness and education. Talk to your children about their online lives, share their experiences and learn from them, help them to use technology positively and responsibly and give them boundaries, guidance and support.
 
Below are links to some free online expert advice specifically for parents/carers on supporting their child in the digital world. They offer ideas on a range of ideas for staying safe online:
