E-safety is the safe use of information systems and electronic communications, including the internet, mobile phones and games consoles. It is important that children and young people understand the benefits, risks and responsibilities of using information technology.
It is crucial that we work together to keep everyone safe online. At school we use the internet a lot for research, coding and much more. The internet is an exciting place however it is important that children are aware of ways in which they can protect themselves online.
A family agreement is great way to get children and parents on board with how we use the internet safely. This can just be a conversation with your child where you agree some rules around using the internet at home, at school or at a friend’s house.
We recently sent you a letter with details for you to create your own account for National Online Safety. There are some very relevant user guides available for parents explaining the pros and cons of different platforms available to our children, these are updated every Wednesday ensuring they are current with any new information. We wanted to share with you an example of the type of information that is available - Zoom is a new platform being used by us all - it is important that we are keeping our children safe online and this scheme can do it all for us.
