Online Safety Advice

Online safety is a core part of our PSHE curriculum and is taught to all pupils so that they are aware of how to keep safe online. We also join in with Safer Internet Day each year and have a day where we focus purely on the latest advice being sent to schools about keeping children safe on the internet.

Making sure our children are safe online is becoming more and more important in a world where everyone can be contacted at the touch of a button. Simple advice and guidance on how to keep your child safe online can be found in many places, and helping teach your child why its important to be safe online is essential. Here are a number of websites to help parents keep their children safe online.

Remember these simple rules about staying safe online:

1. Never share your password.
2. Think before you post.
3. Adjust your privacy settings and review them often.
4. Only accept friend requests from people you know personally.
5. Report things that look suspicious.
