At Prudhoe Castle First School, we recognise the importance of staying safe online. Throughout the year, children will take part in different e-safety sessions promoting the safe use of technology. Children will think about the risks associated with online activity, peer gaming and mobile phones and how to keep themselves safe. Sessions will normally take place within normal ICT teaching.
Parents and guardians are encourage to have an awareness of e-safety. Throughout the year, school may send home guidance and memos regarding e-safety. There may be special events or occasions planned to help deliver the e-safety message.
Here is a list of websites that provide support and advice to parents regarding keeping your children safe online
The Diana Award have put together a really useful little guide for blocking and reporting on some of the more popular platforms: Snapchat, Instagram, WhatsApp, TikTok and Facebook. This is particularly useful for younger children who might just be starting on their social media journey.
