Key Information

Internet Safety

We celebrate the opportunities that being connected online can offer.

However, we also recognise that being connected online can raise the risk that children and young people are exposed to content that may not be appropriate or even, be harmful.

We teach our children in school about how to stay safe online.

Messages you may find useful to encourage your children to remember include:

  • ALWAYS TELL A TRUSTED ADULT straight away if you are upset or worried about something that has happened online
  • SAVE ANY MESSAGES that have upset you so that you can show them to your trusted adult. Never worry about getting in trouble – you aren’t the one who has done anything wrong.
  • You might want to talk to someone else about how you feel. ChildLine offer a service where you can contact them through their website OR call them for free on 0800 1111 and it won’t show up on your phone bill.
  • We also explain to the children that whilst parents or carers can help at home, they should also tell a trusted adult in school - especially if what has happened will also cause unhappiness or worry in the school day.

You might also find it useful to know that we have key people in school who help us keep children safe online. These people include:

Mr Sam Napper - IT curriculum leader

Mrs Michael Thornley - PSHE curriculum leader

Mr Phil Startin - e-Safety Officer
