Online safety is concerned with the safeguarding of young people in the “digital” world and ensuring they feel safe when accessing new technology.
At Holly Trees Primary School, we teach children how to be safe online and about the possible dangers which may be encountered when using digital technology as part of our computing curriculum. However, we also recognise that parents may wish to know more about online safety and therefore have provided links to several good websites aimed at helping parents:
The UK Safer internet Centre (SIC) is a partnership of three organisations with great experience and expertise in making the internet a safer place.
Think U Know
Specific advice for parents and carers. There are links to several websites which have additional resources and support for all age groups.
If you or your child are concerned about the way someone has been communicating with them online, you can find advice and guidance on how to report it on the CEOP website:
The free Childline number: 0800 1111 can also be used to discuss concerns anonymously, or to discuss other issues such as bullying.
