How to keep your child safe on the internet
On Monday 17th October 2016, parents were invited to attend a talk on this subject. Notes from this event can be found by clicking on the image below.
As we all become more aware of online risks to children, many of you may already have parental controls and filters on your home internet connection. To make it easier for parents to know how to set up these controls, the big four internet providers in the UK (BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media) have come together to produce helpful video guides to help you set up controls.
You can access these videos via the UK Safer Internet Centre at this web address:
Please read all of the web page mentioned above which reminds us that filtering is only part of the solution. Talking to your children is just as important, especially telling them to tell you if they come across anything disturbing or get into difficulty. Not revealing personal information is paramount.
There is sometimes a perception that these issues are mostly relevant to older children. However, younger children who do not understand what they are seeing can be affected as much as anyone.
At Priory Prep, we continue to educate children in online safety and acceptable behaviour. All boys and their parents in Years 3 – 8 should have now signed and returned the ICT Acceptable Use Policy.
Finally, I would like to draw to your attention the ‘CEOP Report’ button located at the top of this page. Clicking on this enables children to report suspicious individuals or behaviour instantly to the police (usually in the event of a parent not being available at the time).
Educating children in a partnership between home and school should help to keep them safe online.
