Current Advice from CEOP:
Advice to parents – they should work to create a positive relationship with their children around their internet use, closely supervising younger children’s online access, and crucially, ensuring their children feel they can tell them (or another trusted adult) if they ever encounter anything worrying. Parental controls go some way to protecting children from accidentally viewing disturbing content but are unlikely to prevent it in many cases, for example when content has been deliberately spliced into content aimed at children. Inappropriate content should be reported direct to the online service it appears on”.

We take online safety very seriously. Here are some ways in which we help our children to stay safe online:
- School’s internet service is heavily filtered by our Internet Service Provider.
- We have a current E-safety Policy
- When teaching Computing, our staff include online safety as part of the curriculum.
- We run regular assemblies which give children opportunities to learn about and discuss online safety issues. All children are also aware that if they are ever worried about anything they can talk to any adult in school about this and are always welcome to go and see Mr Blake.
- Teachers run workshops to teach children and adults about online safety and cyber-bullying issues.
- Posters are displayed around school.
