At Templemoor Infant and Nursery School, we believe that online safety is a crucial part of your child's education. Not only is online safety part of our computing curriculum, but important messages and information are given to children through online safety focused assemblies and taking part in national events such as 'Internet Safety Week'.
What we do at Templemoor to keep your child safe online:
- We use filtering software on the school internet.
- We talk to your child about online safety and include it in the curriculum and in assemblies.
- We have guidance for children, staff and parents about online safety.
- We have an online safety policy, which includes cyber-bullying.
- We have 'Acceptable User Agreements' which staff and children sign.
We have a comprehensive Online Safety Policy and this can be downloaded below, along with our Social Media Policy and Twitter Policy.
There is a vast amount of information out there for parents / carers and children to access to help highlight the key aspects of keeping safe when online. Below are a number of documents / resources that we feel are useful and will help to highlight the importance of e-safety.
Latests Ofcom research has shown that 81% of 5-15 year olds have access to a tablet at home and almost 40% of 3 to 4 year olds and two thirds of 5 to 7 year olds go online. Read the document below to help keep your youngest children safe online.
Remember the 5 SMART rules when using the internet and mobile phones.
This clip was made for an online safety awareness campaign for children aged 4 to 8 years old.
