Online Safety

Online Safety means being safe and responsible with technology. We believe that children should be encouraged to use new technology and to embrace the positive impact it can have on their education. We do, however, recognise the risks and dangers new technologies can bring; especially from the internet. We encourage you to access the available information below to support your understanding of how we keep your children safe online at BJCFPS.

For more general information about staying safe online visit Thinkuknow.co.uk — the CEOP Centre’s online safety website providing advice and tips for children and adults of all ages.

The following child friendly booklet may also prove useful when discussing online safety with your children:

Staff and parents at BJCFPS recently attended online safety training. The following guide was used and can support your understanding of how to keep your children safe when accessing common technologies such as laptops, tablets and smart phones:

Another useful website giving advice and resources for parents to use to help them and their families stay safe, is:

https://educateagainsthate.com/about/

This covers the area of extremism but also supports keeping children safe generally. It also gives links to Parentzone and UK Internet Safer Centre which provide useful guidance for parents. Please access and see what they have to offer. There are free copies of the Digital Parenting magazine in the school foyer. Copies of past editions can also be downloaded from the Parentzone website.

 

A general factsheet for parents is available below as well as a 'Keeping Our Children Safe' booklet:
