As a school, we take seriously our responsibility to educate children about and protect children against the risks associated with the internet. Staying safe online is part of the computing curriculum and the school also regularly sends online safety updates to parents and carers via the school newsletter.
If you have any questions about online safety, please contact the school office.
Please find some helpful websites below that explain to parents/ carers and children how to stay safe online:
CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency, and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP is here to help young people (up to age 18) who have been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online or in the real world. We also offer advice and links to support in response to other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying or hacking. For information, advice and to report concerns directly to CEOP, visit the Safety Centre by following this link: https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/

Jessie and Friends: Online safety education for 4-7 year olds
Jessie & Friends is a series of three animations that follow the adventures of Jessie, Tia and Mo as they begin to navigate the online world, watching videos, sharing pictures and playing games. There’s also a storybook for each episode, to help you and your child keep the conversation going.
We use these animations and characters with the children in school when talking about online safety and teaching computing, so they will be familiar with them.
Please follow this link to see how you could use these online safety materials at home with your children to reinforce the messages we are teaching them in school.
