Online safety

The online world is rapidly developing and many of our children now have access to devices which enable them to connect to the internet, take images or video and communicate with others. While it is important not to obstruct them from developing skills from using these devices, it is essential that parents support their children in navigating the online world.

Some of the issues related to primary pupils using the internet are

  • Accessing inappropriate content on the internet
  • Using ‘mature’ social networking sites, such as Facebook, and connecting with individuals they don’t know
  • Being cyberbullied by others on the internet
  • Using technology appropriately, e.g. webcams and cameras on mobile devices
  • Sharing personal information with others they don’t know on the internet
  • Playing video games with adult rating, e.g. Call of Duty

Digital Leaders

The digital leaders have made a great start on becoming the school experts in being safe online. They have already completed their first two modules and learnt about digital footprints and Cyber Bullying. For each module there are online tasks to developed the leaders understanding and task to be recorded in workbooks. After completing all 7 modules they will be an expert in making sensible choices online, and teach the rest of the school how to be safe when using the internet.

NETFLIX PARENT CONTROLS – UPDATE   Click here for information on how to set up parent controls

Netflix have launched an update to their parental controls. Netflix have updated these settings to help families around the world get the most from their viewing experience, as well as allowing them to make decisions about what content is right for their family. This blog looks at these new controls, and how parents and carers can use them with their family.

With over 5,052 TV shows, documentaries and movies currently on Netflix in the UK, there is a lot of great content that young people can use to learn from, engage with or use just to to relax with. The sheer number of titles on Netflix does however mean that there is some content that is not appropriate for all users to watch, with some films and TV shows age rated as 15 or 18.
