e-Safety for Parents
Internet Safety update for parents from NSPCC
NSPCC’s Share Aware: New campaign and resources Share Aware, from NSPCC and O2, gives parents all the tools they need to have regular and informed conversations with their child about staying safe online. Under 20% of parents discuss online safety regularly with their children but we want to get every family talking about their child’s life online, just as they would their day at school. Parents can sign up to the Icebreaker email series and become an expert in their child’s online world in 6 weeks, follow our four simple steps to keeping kids safe online, watch our film ‘Safety advice from a 10 year old’ or visit Net Aware – our guide to your child’s social networks apps and games.
The internet is a great place for kids to be, being Share Aware makes it safer.
During our PD day on January 3rd we received training from Service Birmingham, Link2ict, around online safety in the primary curriculum.
The training supported our current school procedures and the Keeping Children safe in Education September 2016, Statutory guidance for schools and colleges.
As a result of the training, we would like to make parents aware of two websites that provide information on current online risks and provides support tackling such issues.
* www.internetmatters.org have You Tube videos to support their “Protect their curiosity campaign” * NSPCC provide information “ Your guide to the social networks your kids use” on www.net-aware.org.uk
We hope that you find these websites informative.
In school we regularly teach the children about E-safety and the dangers of going online, however it is essential that parents do their bit as well. Please use the information on this page to help go through E-Safety with your children and set some rules together.
Update on E-safety February 2018
We have recently recieved new documentation from the police, regarding E-safety and the use of social media. Please find attached below four documents that will provide you with more information.
