e-safety

 

The internet, mobile phones, games consoles and the like continue to develop and become more sophisticated and it is to everybody's advantage to stay informed and up to date about the innovations as well as the risks that these devices present.

On this page we will endeavour to keep you up-to-date with the best advice around and keep you informed about what your child is being taught about e-safety.     

 CEOP (Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre)

 

   

 

CEOP helps children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report any sort of internet abuse wherever you see these CEOP links - ENSURE YOUR CHILDREN RECOGNISE THE 'EYE' SYMBOL AND KNOW THEY CAN ALSO MAKE A REPORT.

Do you feel confident you have enough knowledge to keep your child safe online? Our website offers an extensive range of information ranging from Keeping Safe Online to Parental Guide for Snapchat. In addition to this information and because we know it is not always convenient to attend e-safety events in school, we are pleased to offer a free online E-safety training module for parents. If you would like to complete the E-safety Training, complete a slip (click here) and return it to school. A link will then be sent out to you via the email address you provide. If you don’t have access to the internet please contact school and we will arrange for you to take the training in school.

Cyberbullying - Getting offensive content taken down

If online content is offensive or inappropriate, and the person or people responsible are known, you need to ensure they understand why the material is unacceptable or offensive and request they remove it. Most social networks have reporting mechanisms in place to report content which breaches their terms, click here to see a list of contact details for Social networking sites. If the person responsible has not been identified, or does not respond to requests to take down the material, the staff member should use the tools on the social networking site directly to make a report.

Some service providers will not accept complaints lodged by a third party. In cases of mobile phone abuse, where the person being bullied is receiving malicious calls and messages, the account holder will need to contact the provider directly. Before you contact a service provider (Click here for Contact details for mobile phone companies), it is important to be clear about where the content is; for example by taking a screen shot of the material that includes the web address. If you are requesting they take down material that is not illegal, be clear to point out how it breaks the site’s terms and conditions. Where the material is suspected of being illegal you should contact the police directly.
