Online Safety

We know that navigating social media and keeping our children safe online can become a daunting prospect. On this page we have pulled together some really useful websites which provide advice and support on everything from setting privacy controls to age appropriate content. We have also included a number of guides on how to support your child in using some of the apps and social networking sites they may start to use.

Childnet — Online safety for young people

As part of our Computing and PSHE curriculum, we use the framework provided by Education for a Connected World  to help our children keep themselves safe online. This framework describes the digital knowledge and skills that children and young people should have and highlights what a child should know in terms of current online technology, its influence on behaviour and development, and what skills they need to be able to navigate it. The framework is organised into the 8 strands you can see below.
