Online Safety Advice

Our online safety policy

The Online Safety Lead is our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) Karen Ward. The 'online safety' message is vitally important for children today.

Advice for Parents/Carers

The YouTube Kids app was introduced in the UK in January 2016 and was designed to allow younger children to use YouTube in a more managed (moderated) way whilst giving parents extra controls. YouTube have introduced a new service called Parent Allowlisting which can be used on mobile devices where a parent can approve a video/channel from the main YouTube app into their child's YouTube Kids account.

Curriculum Information 

We use a range of resources in school to support our online safety teaching. Our teaching is part of our planned curriculum. We adapt our teaching as appropriate in response to any issues raised within the classroom or at home.

We use a variety of stories to help children understand the different aspects of online safety including Smartie the Penguin and Digiduck for older children. 
Jessie and friends consists of three episodes - one for each year group.  These videos and story books feature catchy songs to help the children remember the key messages.

Lee and Kim is a film for Year 1 and 2 that is best watched together as a family to discuss the issues is raises.

SID shares four top tips:

  • People you don't know are strangers. They are not always who they say they are.
  • Be nice to people on the computer as you would in the playground.
  • Keep your personal information private.
  • If you ever get that 'uh oh' feeling you should tell and adult you trust.
