Internet Safety Training for Parents and Carers
National Online Safety Letter to Parents
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.

NSPCC - Speak Out, Stay Safe Assembly
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.
