E-Safety and Cyberbullying Advice

At School

Here at Woodthorpe Primary School, we believe that navigating the internet and technology are essential life skills, which are necessary in shaping pupils into digitally literate individuals. The use of technology is swiftly increasing in society and, as a result of this, its use is embedded into every aspect of our curriculum in order to allow our pupils to thrive in today’s ever-progressing technological world. Although we encourage children to learn through exploring and investigating the internet, they are taught to understand how they can use it positively and safely. Our engaging and up-to-date online safety curriculum is an integral part of ensuring that our pupils know how to stay safe and protect themselves and others online- they are regularly taught how to
respond to and manage any inappropriate material that can upset them or put them in any danger. Every year, we celebrate Safer Internet Day in February. As a school, we spend the day celebrating technology and its benefits, while delivering lessons tailored to online safety, which are progressive throughout the year groups.

At Home

As a parent, you will know how important the internet is to children – they use it to learn, play and socialise. The technology that children use every day can seem a bit daunting and you might worry about the risks your child can face online – such as bullying, contact from strangers or the possibility of them seeing illegal or inappropriate content. If at any point you are concerned about your child online, please do not hesitate to ask the school for support.

What can I do to protect my child?

 Rule setting/agreement – what, who, how long, where
 Having regular, open discussions with your children about online safety
 Frequent monitoring of their online activity
 Regular updating of and use of parental controls
It is worth being aware that no parental controls or filtering options are 100%
fool proof.
