KS 2 Online Safety Advice for Parents and Carers

All parents, carers, pupils and staff should emphasise and promote the importance of a safe online environment.  It is especially important for parents and carers to be aware of what their children are being asked to do online, including the sites they will be asked to use and to know the school staff their child will or may interact with.

We encourage parents and carers to provide age-appropriate supervision for the internet use of the children and young people in their care. Amongst other things, this should include:

  • talking to their children about not accessing age-inappropriate material on devices
  • knowing who their children are talking to online
  • setting up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices. Internet filters should be used to block malicious websites (usually free, but often need to be turned on)
  • be aware of the content being posted online via Google Classroom

Pupils should be encouraged to speak up if they come across:

  • Harmful or upsetting content which can include radicalisation, nudes or semi-nudes
  • Bullying

Please contact school via telephone, email or in person if you want to report any concerns.

Top Tips

Be kind to each other online – Treat others with respect online. If someone upsets you, do not react. Block the person on your contacts list, tell an adult you trust and report them to the website. If being bullied, collect evidence for an adult to see by taking screen shots, saving pictures and emails.

Keep your personal information private – Think carefully before sharing information like where you live, your email address or where you go to school on your profile or when chatting online. You might be sharing your personal details with more people than you think.

Use strong passwords – Protect yourself from hackers by using passwords that are not easy for others to guess. Use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers and do not share your passwords with others, even your friends.

Not everyone is who they say they are – You may trust a friend really well but it can be easy to lie online. The picture or video could be of someone else or be faked. Think carefully about who you chat to and who you add as a friend online.

Check your privacy settings – Change your privacy settings so that only your friends can post on your profile and see the information that you share. Remember to check your privacy settings regularly as sites often update these leading you to share more personal information publicly than you may want to.

Trust your instincts – If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. You can make a choice. If you feel uncomfortable about talking to someone or what you’re being asked to do on a social networking site or chatroom, block them, tell an adult you trust and report it to the website.

Think before you post – Stop and think before filling out forms online, updating your status or posting up pictures and videos of yourself or your friends. Think about who can see what you post online, once shared you can easily lose control.

If you are worried tell an adult you trust - If you ever see anything online that upsets you or something happens that makes you feel uncomfortable talk to an adult you trust about it.

The importance of limited screen time – Explain why it is important to limit screen time and encourage engagement with nature, family and physical activity to promote health and wellbeing and good sleep practise.

Our Classroom

Reading area

In Class 11 we are lucky to have a nice library area filled with lots of books that we can share and enjoy. We have library monitors who look after the library and keep track of all of the books. We can sign books out of our class library and take them home to share with family and enjoy in their own time.

Our computing area

We have a computer in our classroom which we can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help us with our work and to complete different tasks. We have written our own e-safety rules which we have promised to stick by to stay safe when using computers and the internet both in class and at home. We will be following a computing curriculum to enhance your computing skills across the year.

Mindfulness

We like to take time to complete some quiet activities while listening to relaxing music. You may want to complete some mindful colouring at home. 

Class Dojos

We award Class Dojos to children in year 5 who are well behaved, try hard in class, are well mannered and help others.

Parents can use the codes sent home to connect to our class dojos and see how well children are doing.

Who will win the Class Dojo competition this term for the child with the most positive points?
