Online safety advice - how to keep your child safe online.

Online resilience tool - outlines safe and harmful behaviour for children of different ages online.

Online Safety

The opportunities presented by electronic technology: internet, email, apps, games, social sites such as Facebook, Tik-tok Twitter, text messaging etc can be a powerful tool for good communication and social links. It is important that our pupils are able to access the internet and be part of the online world and we want to enable them to understand hoHowever they can also have the potential for harm, especially where children are concerned.

 

Social media accounts can only be set up from the age of 13. If you are setting up an account for your child with a false date of birth, you need to understand the impact this can have later on. If you set up an account for an 8 year old, the site will then assume they are 13 years old. This will protect them from adult content at this stage. However, 5 years later when your child is 13, the site will assume that they are 18 and full adult content including inappropriate messaging and advertising will be accessed by your child.

 

At Callow End Primary School, keeping our pupils from harm, at the same time as providing them with safe access to online resources,  is a priority. We will add any advice to parents about online safety in the section below as we receive it. If you need any further advice or support with online issues please contact us.

 

Our online policy forms the basis on which our decisions are made. It is under regular review with a set date for a detailed consideration of the complete policy. All pupils, parents and school staff are expected to sign an acceptable use agreement, agreeing to use the school's internet and devices in an appropriate way, as outlined on the policy. You can find it on our Policies page.

Safer Internet Day

 

On Tuesday 6th February we will be joining schools and youth organisations across the UK in celebrating Safer Internet Day 2024.

Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology.

 

This year the campaign will be focusing on change online, this includes covering:

• Young people’s perspective on new and emerging technology

• Using the internet to make change for the better

• The changes young people want to see online

• The things that can influence and change the way young people

think, feel and act online and offline

 

Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote in school and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.

 

We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, the UK Safer Internet Centre have created some free activities and information for parents and carers which are available at:

saferinternet.org.uk/SID-parents.

Whether you have 5 minutes to start a conversation or hours to spare, there are top tips, quizzes and films which you can use at home with your child.

 

If you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with your child’s class teacher or Mrs Wilkinson, our Designated Safeguarding Lead.
