As part of our commitment to ensuring the safety of all children, we subscribe to the National Online Safety website. National Online Safety (NOS) provides multi-award winning online safety education for the whole school community. Our belief is that when children go online to learn, to communicate or to play, they should be able to do so safely. As part of our PSHE curriculum we deliver weekly lessons on staying safe online and the children are aware of how to use the internet safely in school.
You will find here some information sheets that focus on the use of Snap Chat, TikTok, You Tube and Horror games. The NOS website has guides available for all areas of online activity – if there is an app or website that your child uses and you would like more information about how to ensure they are kept safe when online then please email me and I can download the safety sheets for you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Parent guides for staying safe online
Always be careful when you are using the internet. It can help you to keep in touch with your friends and help your education – but it can also cause harm – to you and to others.
Remember help is always available at school if you are having any problems online.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your teacher or another adult at school.

Tips for staying safe online:
- Make sure you keep new online friends strictly online. If someone you don't know asks to be your online friend you must ensure an adult knows about it.
- Know how to use the CEOP Button and how to report it to the CEOP Centre if you are concerned about someone’s online behaviour towards you.
