Online Safety

Advice from our Digital Leaders

 

Keeping Children Safe Online in School 

Children access online websites regularly as part of their learning in school.

As a LGfL (London Grid for Learning) school, we use Webscreen Filtering System to ensure that children do not access harmful and inappropriate websites and content in school. Care is given to not be too restrictive so that teaching and learning is impacted by overblocking or by removing so much risk that pupils do not learn about the risk online they would face at home.

You can find more information about this in our Online Safety Policy. 

Advice for Parents 

Parenting children in the digital age can seem daunting. It's never easy to know how to keep our children safe when they aren't with us, and sometimes even when are, if we don't know what's happening in their lives or on their devices! Who are they talking to, what are they doing, are they okay? 

Don't despair though... there is a lot of advice out there that is ever changing to keep up with the fast-paced and ever-changing online world.

Digital resilience awareness session for Y5 and Y6 parents

On 18th April 2023, Perryn Jasper from Barnet's Safer Community team visited and spoke to Y5 and Y6 about online safety with a particular focus on processing information, critical thinking, manipulation, technology, fake news, propaganda and conspiracy theories.

Perryn delivered a virtual parents' session in the evening to parents. He spoke about gaming, social media platforms, exploitation and grooming, including discussing how to have an open dialogue with your children about their experiences, appropriate sleep patterns, how to identify threats and safer use of apps.
