E-safety – helping your child stay safe
|At Park Hill Junior School we take E-Safety extremely seriously, and regularly cover the topic with the pupils and staff. Recently all pupils have had the opportunity to explore the advice given by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) through their Think u Know website.
Below is some guidance from London Grid for Learning (www.safety.lgfl.net), about how to help your child stay safe online.
‘The best way to help your child to be a safe when using the internet and new technologies is to talk to them and make sure they understand these simple rules:
Make sure your child feels able to talk to you, let them know that it’s never too late to tell someone if something makes them feel uncomfortable. Don’t blame your child, let then know you trust them.
Here are two useful leaflets from the NSPCC:
