Please see some parents comments below from the e-safety parent workshop.
'I think maybe the children should of been in this workshop to work alongside their parents and listen and learn and understand together.and then maybe the children would not feel like their parents were having a go at them when it is time to switch tablets etc off.' - Year 6.
'I find e-safety very helpful and had gave me useful information that I will look more into and enforce at my home.' Year 4.
'Very interesting and helpful. Helpful to know and understand the importance of the social media and internet on kids and family.' Year 1 and Nursery.
'Eye opening what can happen if you are not safe and how to make sure you know who your child is talking to.' Year 6.
The Internet is a brilliant resource for learning. Whilst we would never allow a child to cross a road without first teaching them road safety, the same principles must be applied when using technology.
E-Safety is about being positive about the good things the internet has to offer and to show an understanding of how our children use the internet, managing the risks to which they are exposed (just like we try to do in everything else).
Please find below a wealth of resources you can use with your child. In school E-safety is threaded throughout our Curriculum and we hold a dedicated E-safety week each academic year.
All of our children sign an Acceptable Use Policy.
