Internet Safety Meeting for Parents

 

Wednesday 3rd February 2016

 

Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended our e-safety meeting. Val Hurley, the internet safety advisor for North Somerset, led the session for parents and carers, which focussed on how to stay safe online, the dangers to be aware of and how to keep children safe in a digital world. Feedback was very positive from parents:

 

" I didn't realise what some of the apps did"

" It was excellent with up-to-date information and practical steps to take to protect children"

" I'm going to have a chat with my children about the games they play and their online friends"

" My husband and I are going to talk to our children about what they do and how long they spend online"

 

Parents: Further information for parents and carers is available under the 'Parents' section of the school website in the section entitled 'Staying Safe'.

 

Chldren: Age-appropriate content about staying safe online can be found in the 'Children' section of the school website in the part entitled 'Staying Safe'.

 

E--Safety is an important part of keeping children safe and we have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy. E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

 

However, we can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with you to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. Your help is needed to talk to your children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online. Children can accidently or deliberately be exposed to unwanted or unpleasant content or comments online and there are steps you can take at home to minimise this risk.
