Online Safety at Cliff Lane Primary School
The Internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s, and for parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of, such as social media, forums, cyberbullying and inappropriate websites.
Online safety is one of our key priorities for ensuring our children stay safe at school but there are also some useful resources and tips to help parents keep their child safe online.
We recently invited in the team from the Walk Online roadshow, who visit schools all over the country to discuss the issues around online safety and stranger danger. The children were given practical advice on how to stay safe when using digital devices. They also worked on various projects as part of Safer Internet Day.
Below are a list of resources and websites for you to access.
- Staying Safe on Social Media
- Grooming Factsheet
- Online Safety
- Inappropriate Websites Factsheet
- Cyberbullying Factsheet
- Parent and Carers Checklist
The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) is a group of more than 200 organisations drawn from across government, industry, law, academia and charities that work in partnership to help keep children safe online. It deliberates and acts on topical issues concerning children’s use of the internet.
In 2010 and again in 2012, the Evidence Group reviewed the available research, recognising that children’s engagement with the internet and associated digital media continues to change, with new risks and safety issues arising and, fortunately, new research conducted to guide policy and practice. By early 2017 it was judged timely to review the available research afresh.
