Keeping your child safe online

The internet is a fantastic tool and there is a wealth of information online. We encourage all our pupils to use the internet to extend their knowledge and understanding around a range of subjects.

 

The internet can, however, be a daunting and sometimes dangerous place for children. We regularly teach online safety within lessons across all age ranges within school. 

 

As a parent you need to be aware of the risks your child will face when they use the internet and other electronic forms of communication. On this page, you will find some useful material to help you keep your child safe online.

Safer Internet Day 2019

Safer Internet Day 2019 was celebrated in the UK on Tuesday 5th February 2019 focussing on the theme of 'Understanding consent in a digital world'.

 

Activities took place within school to inspire a conversation to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people. We asked our children to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online. This could be in their friendships or relationships, how they take and share images and videos or how they manage their privacy and data.

 

Whole School Activity

Our Year 5 Digital Leaders led a whole school assembly explaining how children can give and ask for consent in a number of online situations. They ended their assembly with the following points to consider:

 

  •  If something makes you worried, uncomfortable or upset it’s always okay to say no.
  • If you’re sure you’re happy with what will happen next then it’s okay to say yes.
  • If what you’re doing online might affect somebody else, always ask their permission first.
  • If you’re unsure or need further support then speak to an adult for help and advice.

KS2 lessons

The children were shown a series of text messages between two friends, Maisie & Zishan. Maisie invites people she knows to join a game created by Zishan, without asking his permission. This leaves Zishan very upset. The children were asked to write a text message Maisie might have sent which could have avoided the upset.  
Children were then asked to think about two different friends and record their feelings as emojis based on different text messages
Finally, the children we asked to make a 'Permission Pledge', based on everything they had learnt in both the assembly and their Safer Internet lesson about 'Understanding consent in a digital world'.

KS1 lessons

In KS1, children were asked to think about what they can do online. They were then asked to write down things they did need permission for and things they didn't need permission for.
To mark the occasion, the Digital Leaders presented each class with a commemorative certificate, to thank them for their contribution.
