What is E-Safety?
E-Safety is about safety with mobile and computer devices. It stands for electronic safety. South Stanley Infant and Nursery School takes an active role in E-Safety to make children safer when using new technologies. It is an integral part of our curriculum and the children like to share their learning with their families through regular e-safety themed assemblies.
At South Stanley Infant and Nursery School pupils use the Internet on a regular basis as part of their learning.
At home, children may be given unsupervised access to the Internet. This, potentially, allows them to access all kinds of society (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes.
We want our website to provide parents/carers/pupils will a range of information to help them keep safe online. If you have any questions about e-safety please speak to a member of staff or to our E-Safety Coordinator Mrs Bosworth (Class 2).
See Here are some tips and useful links to help you :
- Explore e-safety sites – There are lots of links below to useful e-safety sites for children. They are great fun to explore, so why not browse through them with your children?
- Facebook / Bebo / Myspace – Many of these sites have a minimum age limit of 13, so our pupils should NOT be using them.
- Keep your computer in a shared area – Talk to your child about what they are doing online and, if possible, set up your computer in a shared area at home so that you can all share in the wonderful sites that are available online.
- Use a screen grab – on a PC press the ‘prt sc’ button and then paste into a word document. On a mac command- shift-3 – this allows a record of unwanted messages to be kept.
