Online Safety

At Barleyhurst Park Primary, technology is an integral part of each child’s education, however we also appreciate that as children use laptops, tablets and other devices, particularly when accessing content online, there are additional risks. At school, we cover a wide aspect of online safety so that as children get older and use an increased range of resources, they are able to keep themselves safe online.

Starting this year we have also subscribed to the National Online Safety site which has a host of resources available to help ensure children stay as safe as possible while using the internet and enjoying its benefits. Each week they publish a new online safety guide (usually 1 page) which provides the information for parents on a particular topic. The guides cover a whole range of useful subjects, some of which include, Using Smart Phones, Hate Speech Online, Texting Awareness, Snapchat as well as sharing key information about the latest games which children may be playing online.

We hope you find these bursts of information useful and use them where necessary to support your child in staying safe as they enjoy the wonders of the internet.

If you have any questions about online safety, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
