STAY SAFE ELECTRONICALLY - SCROLL DOWN TO FIND OUT HOW

Wel­come to our Par­ents and Children’s Page on ‘E-Safety’. 

We hope you are all keeping safe. We need to stay safe electronically too. Today is Safer Internet Day and this year’s title is, ‘An Internet We Can Trust: Exploring Reliability in the online World. 

This week is all about the internet. While it can be an amazing resource, it's important that children have good experiences online, and know where to get support should something go wrong. I have placed a number of activities and videos for your child/ren on each year computing page and there are lots more too, just scroll down.  In order to access these activities, please click the link on your child’s school jotter page and it will take your directly to their computing page.  Alternatively, click on the Curriculum Tab (next to Home), select Curriculum, then Curriculum Link, click on Computing and then select your child’s year group.

Parent Zone will also be airing Episode four of Remote Schooling SOS — their livestream show for parents —this Thursday at 6pm. It will be covering internet safety and safety tech at home. Does it work? Why is it so hard to set up? What’s worth trying? Just click on the blue link above.  They have also done a PODCAST exploring the question: Should parents stop worrying about the time children spend gaming?  Just click here to watch it.

Parent Zone’s Internet section helps children (aged 8-11) make sense of their online experiences, and encourages them to talk to their parents should they feel worried or confused about something. Click here for some of their fun activities.

 

Richmond Primary School are committed to working with pupils, parents, governors and the whole school community to safeguard children in the digital world. Children learn about E-Safety in lessons, assemblies, through the Digital Leaders’ Termly Newsletter and special days throughout the year. The children are taught how to protect themselves and stay safe online. We also have a member from the 'Prevent Team,' (Leicestershire Constabulary), who comes in each year to discuss how children can stay safe online. We hope the information we supply, together with the links to other recommended sites, will help you under­stand more about e-safety.

 

ON-LINE GAMING - information provided by CEOP:

Online gaming can offer many positive experiences. It can give children and young people the chance to escape into a virtual world, to learn, and to connect with others.  However, there is a risk of children and young people viewing inappropriate content in games and being contacted by adults seeking to exploit them. This week's activity pack for parents and carers to deliver to their children explores how they can stay safe while gaming: 

 

Gaming : a video guide for parents and carers
CEOP' s new video guide and accompanying article, developed in collaboration with The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (Ukie), helps parents and carers to understand:
  • How in-game chat works;
  • How it might be abused by others, and;
  • What they can do to help keep their children safe whilst using in-game chat
 
New from Parent Info: active gaming and Roblox guide
Gaming can be an active experience for children and young people. A new Parent Info article explores how active gaming works and the games available that help them stay active. 

Advice on Roblox for Parents and carers: Parent Info's guide , this takes a look at how the platform is used and how it can be made safer for children.

URGENT MESSAGE TO PARENTS RE: APPS

Please remember a few “laws” of internet safety:

  • There’s no such thing as privacy in any app.
  • Any app that allows people to upload content is always going to have a very dark side.
  • Any app that is difficult to monitor will have greater risk of abuse. Musical.ly, has an age restriction of 13+, like Instagram and Facebook. This is for your child's safety. 
  • Find out more about these apps:https://protectyoungeyes.com/apps/ this site allows you to click on any of these apps to find out how safe your child is.
