Online Safety

Slides shared at our recent Online Safety session for Parents and Carers

As part of Safer Internet Day 2023, we ran a competition to design an online safety poster that we could use across school.  Over half the school entered and it was a really tough choice, but below are the winners!  Their fantastic posters were laminated and they now take pride of place in every classroom.  Well done to everyone that entered blush

Online safety Poster Competition winners!!

The whole school took part in Safer Internet Day 2023 and we thought about the theme which was 'Want to talk about it?' highlighting the importance of talking about what we are doing online and how it makes us feel.

What is Online Safety?

  • Safe guarding young people (and adults) in the digital world
  • Learning, understanding and using new technologies in a positive way
  • Adults being educated to be able to support and help young people
  • Not about restricting children, but educating them about the risks as well as the benefits, so they can feel confident and happy online


Key Advice For Parents/Carers:

  • Talk to your child and understand how they are using the internet and their phone,
  • Use safety tools & parental controls-if you are not sure how contact your service provider
  • Please note tools are not always 100% effective
  • Your child is just as likely to be a bully as to be a target. Be alert to your child being upset after using the internet/phone-they may be secretive, change relationships with friends
  • Remind your child not to retaliate
  • Keep any evidence of cyberbullying emails, online conversations, texts etc to show the school/police
  • Report the cyberbullying
