The online world offers amazing opportunities but also brings elements of potential risk and for Parents & Carers, making sense of the online world can appear to be an enormous challenge. Unlike previous generations, the online environment is an integral part of children’s lives and therefore we can no longer consider their wellbeing or safety without also considering their relationship to technology. However, staying safe online is fundamentally about behaviours rather than the technology itself and if approached from this perspective, we can begin to gain confidence to support our children.
Here at school, we have measures in place to protect the children from any dangerous online content. We have filters in place to screen out anything which might be harmful for children. Each child has their own unique username and password in KS2 and we are able to monitor their online activity to ensure that they are not exposed to harmful content.
In KS1, the children are closely supervised when they are online and staff make sure that content is appropriate.
