Pupils are taught how to keep themselves safe online through a combination of assemblies and lessons from their class teacher.

In particular, pupils are shown how to:

  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibility
  • recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour online, such as cyberbullying
  • keep passwords and personal information safe
  • report when they feel unsafe
  • understand their online presence and how to be in control of their own privacy

We understand that it can be overwhelming to keep up-to-date with new technologies so we highly recommend using the resources below to keep your children safe online.

We have a range of printed guides within the academy that explain how you can keep your children safe online. Please speak to Mrs Whittington  if you would like a copy or you would like to attend our parent workshop on keeping your children safe online.

This video from Internet Matters explains how to apply parental restrictions at home.

This wizard from Internet Matters guides you through the process of applying parental restrictions at home to many different types of devices, from mobile phones and tablets, to broadband routers and apps.

Net Aware from the NSPCC is a website that lists many apps that children use. It explains their risks and how you can keep children safe if they’re using them.

Worried about YouTube?

During our last E-Safety parental workshop, many parents raised their worries about their children using YouTube at home. We also share these anxieties and so we’ve looked into some possible options to help you. The best way to ensure your children on safe online is to encourage them to use their devices within shared family areas and to openly talk to them about the dangers.

The simplest option (for tablets and phones) — YouTube Kids

Simply install the app on your children’s devices and remove the adult-version of YouTube. Your children will only be able to access specially selected content for their age group. The adverts are also suited towards children.

Setting up parental controls on YouTube (for laptops and computers)

This involves signing into YouTube and setting up parental restrictions. You can then see what your children are looking at. Instructions on how to do this .

Alternatively, look at this video for a brief guide on how to do this.
