E Safety

E - Safety at Lingham Primary School

More and more children are accessing the internet, at school and at home. At school we place e-safety as a high priority and teach the children how to stay safe online but we know that for parents, safety on the internet at home is a concern. We've put this page together to give you advice and information about how to help your child keep safe online but if you have any questions or concerns, speak to your child's teacher.

We are all currently in a situation where we are using the internet more than ever to help us learn! Whilst home learning please remember to support your children when they are online. The internet is a great resource but users, particularly children, must be aware that there are dangers associated with it. There are some really useful resources online to educate both parents and children. 

The resources on the following websites are fantastic - 

https://www.internetmatters.org/ - Helping to Keep Children Safe Online: Online Resource shared by Mental Health Services in Schools.
With constant access to the internet at home, at school and on mobile phones, it can be hard to know what your child is accessing and viewing and how to keep them safe. Internetmatters.org is a website dedicated to helping parents and professionals keep children safe online. There is advice on how to talk about internet safety, how to set controls and even guides to the most popular apps and games that your child or young person uses.

https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/ - This series of three animations aims to give 4-7 year olds knowledge, skills and confidence to help them respond safely to risks they may encounter online.

https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/ - These films will help older children (age 8-10) learn more about staying safe online. 

https://www.bbc.com/ownit - there is a vast amount of online support and help videos on this website for children who are not sure what to do about different issues they may be having.

https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/inappropriate-explicit-content/ - Find out what inappropriate content is and how to support your child if they've seen something online that's upset them.

During E-Safety week, in February, all pupils engaged in activities about the importance of staying safe online. This year the theme was 'exploring identity online' and throughout school children learnt about the way to express ourselves online. They discussed how some things are completely fine to share online but other details about ourselves should be kept private. Classes throughout school created art work to show what they had learnt.

Please see the files for leaflets and extra resources that we thought you might find useful when discussing staying safe online with your child.
