Guidance on Internet Safety
Staying safe on the Internet is very important.
Please look at the websites to help you to stay safe online.
Internet safety – Being aware to protect our children
Below is a link to new materials for families to look at to raise awareness about being digitally aware. I would particularly urge parents of children in year 6 to look at these materials in order to support your preparation of your child going to secondary school
Live My Digital: Learning about digital living, together
The Girls' day School Trust has created 'Live My Digital', a unique video series to help parents help their children to stay safe online. The series consists of six short films for parents and six matching films for children to empower families to use social media safely and responsibly.
The videos look at the ways in which the internet and digital technology can be used positively by young people as well as identifying the potential issues they may face. The most critical themes in online safety today are covered including:
- The digital footprint
- Identity and self-esteem
- Relationships and grooming
- Security and privacy
We hope that the films, together with the downloadable online safety factsheets, will help encourage and support open discussions in your family about how to enjoy the online environment whilst staying safe.
