Keeping Children Safe Online is a National Priority. Parents are encouraged to work in partnership with the school to teach children about the importance of e-safety. Children use the Internet to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. It is a highly creative place and offers a wealth of opportunity. The technology that children use every day can seem daunting to parents and carers who often worry about the risks children can face online.
At Wombridge Primary School we take active steps to embed e-safety in our curriculum and children’s learning. We also want to help parents and carers improve their own understanding of e-safety so that they can support their children to use the Internet and digital media in a safe and secure way.
At Wombridge we encourage you to follow the SMART rules when using the internet:
The school is aware and acknowledges that increasing numbers of adults and children are using social networking sites. Some with the widest use are Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WhatApp and Tik Tok. The more you know about the kind of social networking sites your children belong to and what information they like to share, the more likely you’ll be able to keep them safe. The documents below provide parents / carers with information about these social media platforms:
https://www.internetmatters.org/ – this web page offers so much information to you as parents. Children these days are using the internet more and more to be social and remote learning for school/home learning. Internet Matters has been advertised a great deal on the TV and the link above takes you to the main page where questions,
perhaps you have about privacy settings, how to keep you children safe and
questions that perhaps your children know more about the internet than you
do, (they probably do).
