Children at Ashperton Primary Academy use the internet on a regular basis as part of their learning. In school, we teach 'e-safety', to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe when using technology(computers, tablets, phones and gaming devices).
In school we follow the S M A R T rules for staying safe online and each child has taken a copy of these SMART rules home to help them remember how to stay safe when out of school.
We had a very successful Safer Internet Day this year and each child was given a magazine all about staying safe with technology.
We recommend that each home talks about e-safety and creates their own set of rules. Discussions could involve how long your children use the computer or games console and whether the computer games are suitable for their age and whether the ‘friends’ they are playing with online, really are friends they know in the real world.
If you do need to report anything that has happened online, you can report to CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) using this button. You will see this button on lots of other websites.
STAY UP TO DATE AND KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE IN TODAY'S DIGITAL WORLD.
