E-Safety at home during school closure
We understand that many if not all of you, will be accessing ICT in some capacity during the school closure. When you are at home teachers cannot monitor appropriate usage and also we cannot guarantee that 'pop adverts' will be linked to education. Below are some top tips of how you can keep yourself safe when online:
- Always use a device with an adult present.
- Stay safe and do not give out your personal information to sites/people you don't know.
- Never arrange to meet up with people you have spoken to online.
- Don't accept any e-mails/online information from people you don't know.
- Is the website you're using reliable and has the school promoted it?
- Tell an adult if something makes you feel worried or uncomfortable.
- Always be respectful to others when working on a shared platform, for example, Google Classroom.- click the posters opposite to find out more!
Please remember that all access to online devices should be supervised at all times by an adult to avoid the pupils gaining or posting inappropriate content. PLease refer also to the 'Esafety Poster page' to help you keep your child safe online .
