Online safety at School
At Moss Lane we want staff, children, parents and carers to create a school community that embraces the use of new technologies. We promote the use of ICT to enhance learning and teach the children how to keep themselves safe. All staff ensure the children know how to stay safe online and are following our SMART rules. Children also know how to report any problems or incidents straight away.
Online safety at Home
As a parent/carer you will know how important the internet is to children - they use it to learn, play, socialise and express themselves. Using technology does have its risks so we highly recommend you monitor your child’s activity on the internet and engage with your child regarding their use.
The National Online Safety have teamed up with Myleene Klass to share with you a short introductory course ‘Online Safety for Parents of Children Aged 4-7’. This 4-minute video will give you an insight into how our children engage in the online world.
Web Links for Parents/Carers
Children are accessing technology and the internet at a younger age than ever before. It’s never too early to talk to your child about what they do online and who to tell if they come across anything online that makes them feel worried, scared or sad. Jessie & Friends is a series of three animations that follow the adventures of Jessie, Tia and Mo as they begin to navigate the online world, watching videos, sharing pictures and playing games. There’s also a storybook for each episode, to help you and your child keep the conversation going. The key message throughout Jessie and Friends is that if a child is ever worried by anything online, they should tell a grown-up they trust, who will help them.
