Online Safety

Dear Visitor,

 

Please look through the information provided via the links below. This information will enable you to develop a better understanding of how to keep your child safe online.

A new and up to date resource for parents and carers (with a number of translated online leaflets available to individuals whose English is a second language/or non-English speaking persons) can be found by clicking on the following link: https://www.lgfl.net/online-safety/childnet-leaflets-eal

 

It is extremely important that parents and carers work with us to ensure children stay safe in their use of technology. When we talk about online safety, we are not just talking about the internet. We are talking about the use of computers, games consoles (such as X-Box), mobile phones, televisions, tablets (such as the iPad) and many other devices.

When we teach our pupils about Online Safety at the Convent of Jesus and Mary Infant School & Nursery we think about:

 

  1. How to use the internet safely and what to do if something goes wrong or we see something we shouldn’t.
  2. How to keep ourselves safe – keeping our details private and keeping our data secure.
  3. How to behave when using technology – being courteous and responsible, and what to do if others are unkind. This aspect of Online Safety links with our behaviour and anti-bullying policies.
  4. Encouraging a healthy use of technology – refrain from over-using mobiles, consoles tablets or computers.

 

Please take the time to look at these great new resources that will help you set up your technology to be as safe as possible at home.
