eSafety - Keeping children safe online

 

Sedgeberrow CE First School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, this extends to their lives online.

 

With online technologies accessible 24 hours a day, children's safety online is a growing concern.  The best way to keep your children safe online is to have open channels of communication between yourself and your children about their online lives.  

 View our eSafety policy here

To view our eSafety presentation for parents please click here. This provides some further information about the importance of staying safe online along with some of the threats that children are open to in the modern world. This presentation is not suitable for children. 

Conversation starters for parents and carers that may be helpful:

  • Ask your children to tell you what they like most about the internet and why eg sites they visit, ways to communicate, games they play etc.
  • Ask your children how they stay safe online.  What tips do they have for you to deal with online issues?
  • Encourage your children to help others.  Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would benefit from their help and support. 
  • Think about how you each use the internet.  What more could you do to use the internet together?  Are there online activities you can enjoy as a family?

 Please find here a list of helpful websites to help you to keep your children safe online.
