Staying Safe

Internet safety

Let's talk E-Safety

 At Croft Primary School, we acknowledge the importance of educating our pupils on how to stay safe when using technology.

Most children at Croft Primary School use computers, mobile phones, video games consoles etc. as part of their everyday lives. They often seem ‘expert’ compared to parents as they have been born into the ‘digital age’, but children still need your support. You can provide this by talking to your child about what they are doing online, who they are talking to and how to stay safe.

Please take a look at the documents below for useful information that helps to ensure our children are accessing the internet correctly and safely.


Keeping your child safe – General Advice
To help keep your child safe online:

  • talk to your child about the dangers posed by the internet
  • tell them what they should do if they become worried or concerned
  • explain that anything shared online or by mobile phone could end up being seen by anyone
  • understand what your child does online and know which websites they visit
  • put the computer where the whole family can see it, not out of sight in a bedroom
  • use filtering software to block inappropriate sites
