Keeping children safe online

posted 6 Feb 2017, 01:20 by Sandringham School
At Sandringham Primary School, we are committed to promoting the safe and responsible use of the

internet, so that we can support our children with making the right choices when they are online.

Tuesday 7th February 2017 is Safer Internet Day around the world. We are celebrating this important event in school, with assemblies and activities this week that focus on the children knowing how to keep themselves safe online.

In school, the children have created a class set of rules for keeping themselves safe online and have produced one to bring home to use with you when they use any form of technology to access the online world. We would like you to talk to your children about the rules, decide if you want to add any other online rules for your own house and then sign and return the reply slip below.

Through lessons provided at school, assemblies and PSHE lessons, we do our best to provide our children with the awareness and knowledge they need in order to recognise and avoid dangerous, destructive, or unlawful behaviour and to respond appropriately. However, it is only through a collaborative effort between parents and teachers that we will succeed in creating responsible and safe cyber citizens.

We recommend that all parents visit the CEOP Think U Know website for more information on keeping your child safe online www.thinkuknow.co.uk . In addition, there is a parental information pack on the Safer Internet Day website at www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2017/education-packs/education-Safer Internet Pack.

In addition, we will continue to provide you with any internet safety messages that we receive about apps, as well as the Digital Magazine we sent out earlier this year.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
