Keeping your child safe online during home learning
Technology is a fantastic tool to help children be able to continue to learn from home. However to keep your child safe online it is really important that you have appropriate parental controls and filters in place. Despite the controls, it is very important that you supervise them whilst using the internet.
Be confident that you know which websites or apps your children are accessing and that they are age appropriate.
When working online it is essential that children and parents know how to report any concerns that they have.
How to report concerns:
Call or e-mail the school office.
The websites listed below will signpost children and parents towards age appropriate practical support:
UK Safer Internet Centre - to report and remove harmful content online.
CEOP - for advice on making a report about abuse online.
