The internet can play an important, powerful role in our children's education today. However, it can also bring risks, so together as teachers, teaching assistants, parents and carers we all must do everything we can to help our children stay safe online at school and at home.
Teachers recommend that our children should only access safe and trusted sites online when at school and at home.
When at home, parents and carers must regularly monitor their child when using their online appliances (laptop, mobile, iPad, game console, Xbox etc) to ensure they are safe at all times.
During school closures, teachers, parents and carers need to put in to place strengthened measures to protect our children from harm online in school and at home. In school, we filter inappropriate online content and we are always educationing our children how to stay safe online. It will be fantastic if parents and carers ensure that their children are only using safe, trusted, child friendly online sites while out of school and make frequent checks that they are staying safe.
There is a lot of support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
