Many parents and carers find it difficult to advise their children how to stay safe on the Internet and when using mobile phones. Chat rooms, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram (to name a few) are all attractive and familiar to young people, but they often lack the maturity to recognise that feeling safe is not the same as being safe.
At Wembley Primary School all staff, children and members of our school community participate in annual online safety training. Children understand and must agree to the school's acceptable use of technology rules each time they login to a laptop or desktop PC. This is again reinforced each time children use technology, as they are reminded of the SMART rules, recommended by ChildLine and KIDSmart.
For more information about keeping your child safe from online dangers, and to support your child's e-safety awareness and digital literacy skills visit ThinkuKnow and read the Digital Parenting Magazine was sent out to all parent, an online copy can be found here http://vodafonedigitalparenting.co.uk/ Please see our Policies page for a copy of our Online Safety Policy, including copies of our AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) Agreements for pupils.
