STAYING SAFE ONLINE:
At St. Michael's Easthampstead Primary School we recognise the importance of teaching the children about safe internet use. We enforce this in a variety of ways in school (including specific lessons covering online safety) and have appropriate filters in place across our school network to eliminate access to age-inappropriate material.
With more and more children having access at home to mobile technology and gaming devices, we want to provide some helpful advice to parents/carers on parental controls that can easily be put in place on devices used at home, to further protect our children. All parents/carers need to be vigilant over what the children are viewing, downloading, playing, watching and saying online. Everyone is vulnerable online but especially children and we ALL have a duty of care to protect them.
Should you have any questions or concerns about online safety please do speak to Miss Lewis (e-safety leader), your child's class teacher or Mr. Saunders, Miss Kearney or Mr. Davies.
Whether a child is using a phone, laptop, tablet device (iPad/Kindle/Surface etc) or gaming device (XBox/Nintendo/Playstation), parental controls and restrictions are easy to set up.
