Staying Safe Online at Home

Whilst many Internet Service Providers offer filtering systems and tools to help you safeguard your child at home, it remains incredibly easy for children to access inappropriate material including unsuitable text, pictures and movies.

Top Tips for Keeping Safe Online

1) Set security levels within Internet Explorer or other browsers to the highest level on devices accessed by your children.

2) Locate your computer in a family area where possible, not a bedroom. This will enable you to supervise your children as they use the Internet.

3) Consider mobile phones, games consoles and other devices that can access the internet and ensure that these have the same level of security imposed.

Please don’t deny your children the opportunity to learn from and enjoy the wide variety of material and games available on the Internet but instead discuss with them some simple rules for keeping safe online, making sure they understand their importance.

Staying Safe Online at School

We apply strong firewalls in school to protect our children from inappropriate content however we also realise the importance of teaching our children what to do when things go wrong.

Every computer in school has a 'big red button' which children can use if they see any computer based content that they do not like.
