At Newker Primary School, we are all committed to keeping children safe online. This forms part of our safeguarding and allows children to make sensible and safe choices about the way they interact, communicate and find information in a digital world. We take this duty very seriously and believe it is the responsibility of everyone who comes into contact with our children and their families so that we can all remain safe. At all times we must remain vigilent and be mindful of what I children are accessing and the dangers they may face.
In order to assist Parents and Carers in this role, we have provided a range of resources and information that you may find useful in informing your understanding of how you can best protect your child. Could you please also show your child the 'CLICK CEOP' icon that appears at the bottom of every page. This is the national reporting centre for children to visit if they are ever worried or have concerns about any inappropriate communications they have received.
Dear Parents and Carers,
www.nationalonlinesafety.com have released their new app. If you register from their site using either the link for IOS or Android devices, you will receive notifications when they release new advice and information, and also be able to search through their online library of safety guides.
I registered a week ago and today I was sent a notification for their publication – ‘12 Online Safety Tips for Children With New Devices’.
They also have guides regarding the most popular online games and how parents can keep their child stay safe while using them, what parents need to know about PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X/S, and many more.
Have a Safe and Happy Christmas,
