E-safety for Parents

  • Technology continues to change at an alarming rate, try and keep up to date with developments so that you know the risks that your children may face
  • Good online safety applies to all devices not just computers – tablets, online gaming, smartphones and e-readers
  • Set up INTERNET security so that your children cannot access websites with inappropriate or adult content
  • Cyber bullying should be treated the same way as other forms of bullying, always inform school of any concerns you may have
  • Be aware that ‘sexting’ increasingly involves younger children, some as young as 10
  • Always encourage your child to talk to you about anything they feel uncomfortable about that they see on the INTERNET
  • Check out our policies with regard to computing – Digital Safeguarding Policy, E-Learning Policy and E Safety Guidelines for Parents and Children.
Things to Consider and Discuss with your Child:
  • Where is the best place to use your ‘computer’?
  • Keep passwords safe – don’t write them down or tell them to anyone
  • How do you report cyber bullying?
  • Is it ever sensible to meet with a friend you have met online?
  • How do you know the person you are talking too online is who you think they are?
