E-Safety for Children
E-Safety is an important part of keeping you safe at St Paul's Junior School .
We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any E-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our E-Safety policy.
E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.
At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
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.
Here are some tips and useful links to help you to keep your children safe online:
- Explore e-safety sites - There are lots of links to useful e-safety sites for children. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
The KnowItAll website offers lots of useful advice for keeping yourselves and your children safe on the Internet.
- Facebook / Instagram / Social Network Sites - Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them. They do not offer an adequate level of protection, allowing children to communicate with anyone.
- Keep your computer in a shared area - Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
