Online Safety (E-Safety) is an important part of keeping children safe at St Barnabas and St Paul's Primary School. We have extensive security measures in place in school to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Internet and E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the E-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
Worried about a child?
The National Online Safety Group have launched a new campaign called #wakeupWednesday. This campaign is designed to help keep children safe online.
Each week, on a Wednesday, the group provide an online safety guide which we will be posting on our school website below.
Please take the time to read the guides. Some may be relevant to games or APPs your children use at home.
By actively reading the guides, you are ensuring that you stay up-to-date with latest developments in the online world.
We aim to equip each and every trusted adult with the crucial information they need to keep children safe online and to raise awareness of the associated issues that could arise from online activities for children.
The guides focus on social media applications, online games, and general online safety guides.
