Support for parents and carers during schools closures

During school closures, it will be particularly helpful for families to have access to guidance and support to keep each other healthy and safe with technology. These suggestions could be shared via your school website or social media:

Our Online Safety Agreement

We agree to:

  • use IT help us learn
  • keep passwords and account details private
  • try to recognised when we have been on a computer for too long, come off and do something else.
  • use and search for material which is suitable for school
  • follow school rules when using IT resources and the internet:

We know that we:

  • ask an adult if we can go on the internet
  • never give out personal information over the internet
  • never share our passwords
  • minimise a page and tell an adult if anything appears that concerns us or we shouldn’t see.
  • never use the internet to send unkind messages or search for offensive material
  • never open or reply to messages from unknown senders
  • think carefully about the information we read on the internet as it may not be accurate
  • only use polite language when messaging

Our teachers must:

  • check search terms and use child friendly search engines
  • show us how to stay safe on the internet using the internet safety resources

Each year we celebrate Safer Internet Day – this year the focus was ‘Be the change: Unite for a better Internet’.
