KEEPING CHILDREN SAFE ONLINE
e-Safety is an integral part of keeping children safe at Iver Village Infant School. We have extensive security measures in place in school, which are monitored both internally and externally, to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed. e-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 e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.
It’s essential to be realistic - banning the internet or technology will not work and it often makes a child less likely to report a problem. Education around safe use is essential.
Advice for parents about keeping your child safe when using the internet, social networking websites and online gaming.
These checklists provide a quick reference guide to help you talk to your child about keeping safe online
