Keeping Safe Online

Getting advice and guidance if something goes wrong

The Internet has become a vital part of all of our lives, especially since lockdown. When used well, it is a powerful learning tool. Many of our children are more confident users than adults as they navigate their way through the familiar world.

For parents and carers, this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of, in particular, the need to ensure your child’s safe and responsible use of technology and build their critical thinking skills in regards to what they see online.

On the links below, you will find lots of useful information about e-safety here at school. If you have any queries, please contact the school and speak to a member of staff.

Learning about keeping safe online is built into both our Computing and PSHCE curriculums, to ensure children leave us with an understanding of how to protect both themselves, and others.

We celebrate Safer Internet Day each year, helping children use be responsible online and good digital citizens.

Acceptable Use Agreements

Part of keeping ourselves and our children safe online is about having strong guidance around our use of the internet, social media, phones and apps. To ensure everyone in the St Judes community is promoting safe and responsible use of the online world we have 'Acceptable Use Agreements' which are signed by staff, parents and children. Some of the things laid out in these agreements are-

  • letting a trusted adult know if something they don’t like has happened online or via phone – we want them to ‘flag it’ with us
  • taking care of IT equipment
  • blocking people who send nasty messages and not to open unknown links and attachments (preventing viruses, malware and adware from infecting school systems) – where we let them know to ‘block it’
  • behaving in the same positive, friendly and responsible way online with their friends as they would on the playground.

We also highlight the need to ‘zip it’: keeping their personal information private – 40% of children in the school have given out information about themselves (either photos or contact details) online.
