We use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. Technology enhances learning, and we want to ensure pupils get the most from it, by encouraging responsible online behaviour.
In school, we use a filtering system to prevent children accessing inappropriate sites. We begin each term with 'e-safety' activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and so we need to ensure we keep safe online.
Keep your computer in a shared area: Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
Facebook/Instagram: Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.
Pegi ratings: Games that have 12 or 16 or 18 certificates have been rated unsuitable for children, our pupils should not be playing them. Please use the rating system carefully. COD and GTA are not suitable games for children.
