Young people are using technology at home and at school. They use computers, mobile phones, video game consoles etc as part of their everyday lives. They often seem ‘expert’ compared to parents!
But young people do not have the ‘life experience’ of adults and need your support. You can provide this by talking to your child about what they are doing with technology and how to keep safe online.
Our E-safety Policy can help understand some of the expectations for our children and staff here at Stamford Hill Primary School.
We want children to use the internet in a well supported and safe way, they need to be
Safe: Don’t give your personal information out such as email, home address or school name
Meet: Meeting someone in real life that you have only been in touch with online can be dangerous. Only do so with your parents’ or carers’ permission
Accepting: Accepting emails, messages, or opening files, images or texts from people you don’t know or trust can lead to problems
Reliable: Someone online might lie about who they are. Information on the internet may not be true. Always check information by looking at other websites, in books, or ask someone who knows.
Tell: Tell a parent, carer or a trusted adult if someone, or something, makes you feel uncomfortable or worried, or if you or someone you know is being bullied online
