We take children’s safeguarding very seriously in school and understand online safety is something we all have to work together on. Online safety is part of Safeguarding for us and our e-safety policy is an appendix to the Safeguarding policy. Our aim is to help children stay safe online through education, empowering them to make the right decisions.
Our favourite e-safety websites are CHILDNET and THINKYOUKNOW . Also, the NSPCC Online safety section is very good and is always kept up to date too. Do take a good look at both- they are full of up to date information.
What should your child do if they see something that upsets them?
- Always tell a trusted adult straight away.
- Save any messages that have upset you so you can show them to who you tell.
- If you don’t want to talk to a trusted adult, you may want to chat to someone else about how you feel. ChildLine is a site where you can have a private chat with someone who will listen to you and not judge you. You can also call them for free on 0800 1111 and it won’t show up on your phone bill.
