Many children use technology on a daily basis and are familiar with using a range of devices including PC's, laptops, tablets, smart phones and online games. We regularly discuss being safe on the internet at school and take part in Safer Internet Day each year.
We have created a leaflet regarding E-Safety which is available in the school reception video. A copy of this is below. To support this leaflet we have also created a video for Parents about E-safety to help your children at home.
Safer Internet Day 2024
Today - Tuesday, 6 February 2024 - is Safer Internet Day. This special celebration takes place in February of each year to raise awareness of a safer and better internet for all, and especially for children.
As part of this annual celebration, we encourage everyone - including children, parents and staff to join "Together for a better internet".
The children celebrated today by listening to a Safer Internet Day assembly, participating in activities to ensure that they understand how to stay safe online and listened to stories about 'Smartie the Penguin' who explains which information you should and should not share online.
At Willesborough schools we regularly discuss E-Safety and think about how we can be safe online. Below is a video we have shared with Year 1 and Year 2 to support our E-Safety discussions.
Here are a selection of children’s E-Safety responses. This video includes children’s performances, photos of work and E-Safety definitions.
This poster is up in our school to support the children’s knowledge of how to stay safe online.
To help further, we have added some more links to support parents/carers in helping children use the internet safely at home. We have included links to Kent County Council/Trading Standards regarding information for keeping your child safe online and our E-Safety Policy.
