Internet Safety Training for Parents and Carers

Due to the government lockdowns, children are spending an increasing amount of time online. As you are aware, the internet can be a dangerous place for children without the proper guidance and supervision. We realise that this can be a very daunting task for parents and carers as it is difficult to stay up to date with the ever-changing online world and the threats it can pose to children. To try and help you stay well-informed, we are offering access to a free online safety course for parents and carers.
This completely practical, non-technical training will provide you with the essential information you need for keeping your young people safe online.
You will learn what you need to know about internet safety and gain access to new resources and strategies to help make your home a safe online space.
• Parental Controls.
• Social Media & YouTube
• Online Games.
• Grooming and Child Exploitation.
• Creating a Family Agreement.
Please note, this workshop is not suitable for children and is for Parents and Carers only.
At the end of the training, you will be able to download OpenView Education’s Free E-Book: Keeping Children Safe Online, this includes all of the information covered in the training, along with direct links to all of the resources mentioned.

In order to ensure that all of our pupils stay safe online, we have created a set of E-Safety rules.
1) Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
2) Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
3) Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
4) Never give out your passwords
5) Don’t befriend people you don’t know
6) Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do
7) Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
8) Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
9) Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude
10) If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
To equip parents with e-safety guidance on the most popular games and social media platforms, we have the following guidance available. The guidance can support pupils to stay safe online whilst at home.

8th October 2020
This morning Toucan and Kingfisher Class have had a visit from Nottinghamshire Police, who spoke to them about keeping safe online and cyber crimes. We thought about social media and the potential dangers involved with using them.
There are three key things to remember for staying safe online:
- ZIP IT: Think twice about what you say online.
- FLAG IT: Tell an adult or another trusted grown-up.
- BLOCK IT: Block and delete messages from people you don't know.
NSPCC - Speak Out, Stay Safe Assembly
W/C 2nd September 2020
Speak out Stay safe is a safeguarding programme for children aged 5- to 11-years-old. It is available to all primary schools in the UK and Channel Islands.
The programme helps children understand:
- abuse in all its forms and how to recognise signs of abuse
- that abuse is never a child’s fault and that they have the right to be safe
- where to get help and the sources of help available to them, including our Childline service.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the way Speak out Stay safe is delivered has been changed. Ant and Dec have launched an online version of the assembly.
The programme includes access to online assemblies and supporting resources which can be used in the classroom. It is an effective way to support our school's safeguarding duties and link them directly to the curriculum. It also helps reinforce key messages about abuse and neglect as part of a school’s teaching on relationships. The programme also supports children to feel empowered - knowing how they can speak out and stay safe.
