Discussing today how we are going to manage the appeals process...will it be a ‘normal’ pre-2020 appeals process? Students have had covid; some haven’t; self isolation for some, some more than once. This term. Same for staff too. https://t.co/FEEdocDbCW

E-Safety

Helping your child/ren to stay safe online

In Pine Ridge and Lorraine Schools, we strongly believe that digital literacy and e-safety are an integral part of children’s education in today’s increasingly interconnected and digital world.  Our curriculum aims to ensure that children become digitally literate at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active, responsible and safe participants in a digital world.  We regularly talk to children about e-safety and how to stay safe online. We also ensure that parents are able to improve their understanding of e-safety issues in order to support and safeguard their children’s online experiences.

Communication is essential in supporting and safeguarding a child’s digital usage.  We would recommend talking with your child about e-safety and would encourage you to monitor their online activity.

Help children stay safe online:

  1. Have the conversation early and often.
  2. Explore online together.
  3. Know who your child is talking to online.
  4. Set rules and agree boundaries.
  5. Make sure that content is age-appropriate.
  6. Use parental controls to filter, restrict, monitor or report content.
  7. Check they know how to use privacy settings and reporting tools.
  8. Ensure that they know to talk to a trusted adult about anything they have encountered which has made them feel uncomfortable or worried.

We would also highly recommend https://www.internetmatters.org/ and https://parentzone.org.uk which have a range of suggestions for the kinds of activities children engage in online, some of the issues which might affect them and advice on how best to support and safeguard these online experiences.

We have also included a range of platform specific parent guides from the excellent National Online Safety to help advise how best to keep your children safe online when using specific apps, platforms and games.  7 topics for conversation about online safety can be found here:
