Here at Manor Leas Infant School we are using technology more and more each day, both in school and at home.
We feel it is very important to ensure that our children are safe when using today's technology and that they understand how to stay safe in the future.
Below is some helpful advice and a number of links to where you can gain more advice to help keep your children safe.
The following information is taken from the CEOPS website (Child Expolitation and Online Protection Centre). Click on the link below to go to their child friendly website.
Always ask a grown up before you use the internet. They can help you find the best thing to do.
Don’t tell strangers where you live, your phone number or where you go to school. Only your friends and family need to know that.
Don’t send pictures to people you don’t know. You don’t want strangers looking at photos of you, your friends or your family.
Tell a grown up if you feel scared or unhappy about anything.
Ask a grown up to help you put the Hector's World Safety Button on your computer. This will mean you can press it if anything makes you scared or unhappy.
You can also call ‘Childline’ on: 08001111 to talk to someone who can help.
To help keep safe when using computers and digital devices we ensure that all children and staff follow our E-Safety Policy which can be downloaded from the Policy Section of the website.
We want to ensure that all children know how to keep safe but also have access to the internet for educational purposes. we use strict council filtering to ensure that the children are protected. We will allow the children to use sites such as Google, but only under adult supervision.
We may also use sites such as You tube and Vimeo, but only during direct teaching sessions, under strict observation.
If you would like further support and guidance on how to keep your children safe when using the computers and accessing the internet, on any media device, please use the links below, or ask to speak to Mrs Kirwan.
