From EYFS our children are taught about the importance of staying safe online. At Rillington Primary School we have very clear E-safety guidelines for both staff and children and everyone signs an Acceptable Use Agreement before they use a computer. As this is a constantly changing world, we try to provide children and parents with as much up to date information as we can about practical ways to stay safe on the internet and E-safety teaching is incorporated regularly into all computing lessons.
Advice for parents:
You may sometimes feel that your children have better technical skills than you do, however children and young people still need advice and protection when it comes to managing their lives online.
Children are using devices at a younger age so it’s important to consider setting controls on their tech, or on any devices that you are letting them borrow from you. We’ve pulled together a number of guides to give you simple steps to set controls on a range of devices.
Parents are encouraged to read the newsletter below from the Online Safety Team - it offers advice and support for keeping children safe online:
Our children are continuously reminded about how to stay safe on the internet and how to seek help and advice if they require it.
The following links will help both parents and children with e-safety advice and guidance.
