Online Safety

How safe is your child?

An increasing number of children are given access to games, etc with an 18 or 15 certificate … this is illegal and has been shown to have a very negative effect on their behaviour, expectations and attitudes.

Please check … are you sure your child’s games/films are age appropriate?

 

See the video links below, that you could watch with your children about internet safety.

Online Safety

Online Safety is an important part of keeping children safe at Glemsford Primary Academy. We have security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any Online Safety incidents are recorded. Online Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

 

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the Online Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
