Our children today are growing up in a very different world from the one we grew up in. Most children these days have regular access to the internet via PCs, games consoles and mobile technologies. Whilst this instant communication offers great opportunities for learning it is our responsibility as adults to ensure we keep our children safe from any dangers or images that could upset them.
Children at St Bernadette's Primary School use the internet as part of their learning and we have regular activities and conversations to remind the children about the importance of staying safe on the internet both in school and out of school. It is important we work with parents/carers to ensure the safety of the children whilst using the internet. It is important parents/carers speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately on line. We are working towards our 360 degree safe mark for Online Safety across the school. There was a parent's e safety meeting and this PowerPoint is available with other resources below.
Please support us by talking to your child about e-safety issues and monitoring what they are doing online and while using technology.
