E-safety is an important part of our computing and PSHCE provision. We are committed to helping children to navigate their digital world safely. We do this through regular lessons where we discuss situations that might occur, from cyber bullying to phishing. We stress the importance of not sharing information online and reporting anything that is strange or upsetting to an adult.

Although we do regular work on this in school, parents also play a huge role in managing and monitoring their children's internet usage. Children are becoming increasingly savvy as technology becomes more complex and it is often fully integrated into their lifestyles. Although the vast majority of online interactions are positive, we want our children to keep safe and use the internet responsibly.

Please talk to your children about what they are doing online. We recommend keeping devices like games consoles, mobile phones and laptops in communal areas. We often find that children who have access to a games console or mobile device in their bedrooms are much more likely to be accessing inappropriate content or using systems that they are too young for.

Just as you wouldn't show your child a violent horror film that was rated 18, please check their video games and apps to make sure that they are age appropriate. Tik Tok, for example, is only for people 13+ years.
