Keeping your children safe online

Cyber-safety is a key aspect of our Computing and ICT curriculum. Each year, children learn about different aspects of how to keep themselves safe online, and are reminded of what risks the internet might pose. We know that technology changes rapidly, though, and to ensure parents and family members feel confident about helping their children use the internet safely at home we recently hosted staff from education IT provider RM, who led an informal workshop for parents about online safety.  The slides from the evening are below – please have a look through and remind yourselves of these important messages.

A couple of tips which might help are:

  • Remember that children need to be older than 13 to use social networking sites, including FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat. During the Key Stage Two workshops, pupils were told to let parents know if they are registered to any of these sites so please ask your children what they currently use.
  • Call of Duty has an 18 certificate, and should not be played by children younger than this. Certificates attached to games are as important as those applied to films, so please make sure that your children only use age-appropriate games.
  • Demos of games are often available on YouTube, so if you are not certain whether they are appropriate before you buy them try googling the name to see if ay previews are available.
