Children are taught to use technology safely and respectfully. They learn what personal information is and how to keep it private. They also identify where to go for help and support if they have any concerns and they are also taught how to behave online.
Full details can be found in our E-Safety policy below.
All children in Years 1 – 6 are asked to read through an E-safety agreement with their parents and the children are asked to sign to say they understand. Please click on the buttons below to view these agreements.
Online Safety Newsletter – October 2021
As half term is nearly upon us and the children will be enjoying using their devices during the holiday I thought it may be useful to have some information on game and films age ratings.
Some pupils have been watching the Netflix series Squid Games on you tube, this programme has an age rating of 18 and is therefore unsuitable for children under the age of 18 to view. BBFC age ratings can help parents decide if films and TV shows are right for their family. You’ll see age ratings – like U, PG and 12 – in the cinema, on DVDs and on streaming services.
Children do enjoy going onto YouTube to watch film clips and listen music. Unfortunately, some of the content can be distressing and violent. Although children of all ages often watch YouTube content directly via the website or main YouTube app, YouTube itself states that the only place children should be watching its videos is in the YouTube Kids app. I have included information to help you set up You Tube Kids on your devices.
I hope the guides are useful and you enjoy a relaxing week
