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.

 

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.

Tuesday 11th February 2020 is Safer Internet Day

 

Safer Internet Day is a fantastic opportunity to have a conversation with children about using the internet safely, responsibly and positively. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, foster carer, aunt, uncle or older sibling – we can all play a role in empowering children to enjoy their time online! This year it is being celebrated with the theme: Together for a better internet. This day aims to inspire a national conversation about using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively.
