Online Safety Links
At Hartshorne C of E Primary School we believe that we all have a role to play in ensuring that children are kept safe whilst using technology. Online safety is not just about keeping safe on the Internet but also covers the use of computers, tablets (iPad/Nexus 7), games consoles (X-Box/PS4) as well as mobile phones and televisions.
We cover several elements of Online Safety through the curriculum at Hartshorne C of E Primary School- see the cyber safety paragraph on the Keeping Your Child Safe page of our website.
Below you will find a range of useful resources and links to advice which can help you to keep your child safe in the digital world.
Checklist for Parents and Carers
This checklist highlights the steps you should take in order to manage any child who uses digital technology in its various forms. The list is by no means definitive but is meant to serve as a starting point for a conversation with your child.
Comprehensive advice is available from the UK's leading child protection websites. Each has an array of safety tips, videos and useful information
Technology need not be something you fear. For parents there are Parental Control/Tools that can be used to limit features of games consoles and mobile phones so that the risks of the technology being misused are reduced.
