Being online is an integral part of children and young people’s lives. Social media, online games, websites and apps can be accessed through mobile phones, computers, laptops and tablets – all of which form a part of children and young people’s online world.
The internet and online technology provides new opportunities for young people’s learning and growth, but it can also expose them to new types of risks.
E-safety is a fundamental part of Sheet Primary schools’ safeguarding and child protection measures.
Government guidance for schools across the UK highlights the importance of safeguarding children and young online.
Having a whole school approach helps ensure staff, governors, volunteers and parents teach children about online safety.
Schools have a dual responsibility when it comes to e-safety: to ensure the school’s online procedures keep children and young people safe, and to teach them about online safety, in and outside of school.
We foster an open environment in which children and young people are encouraged to ask any questions and participate in an ongoing conversation about the benefits and dangers of the online world.
We produce monthly online safety newsletters to help to keep parents informed in this fast changing world and regularly share tips and advice to parents.
Our next parent online safety information evening is Wednesday 29th November - come and look at ways to keep your children safe online with hints and tips for healthy online use!
