Here's a question to ask your child: is everything on the Internet true?
E-Safety for Parents
If you have any questions or concerns about your child's online safety or activity please speak to your child's class teacher or feel free to contact Mrs Lawrence, the Computing curriculum leader, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This information is designed to help you stay informed about the online activities of your children. It is easy to think that your child will not be engaging in online activity that may bring them to harm, however many children are drawn into activity unwillingly and unknowingly. They are victims. Parents are always aim to be well informed.
This video, created by CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) is designed to show children and parents how vulnerable children are to grooming. Our Y3 and Y4 children watched this video as part of an E-safety focus afternoon during the autumn term. We think it is also an invaluable video for parents to watch as it really highlights the vulnerability of children.
Should you feel your child has been put at risk, or is at risk it is incredibly important that this is reported to the appropriate organisation - either CEOP or directly to the police. You can use the following images to investigate these websites.
