E-Safety for Parents and Children

Here at Ashley Junior School, we are committed to keeping your children safe. On a regular basis, many of our children use the Internet as part of their learning, therefore, I deliver regular ‘e-safety’ activities to remind children of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. To keep our children safe, our school internet settings are very secure – we have many filters which block inappropriate material being shown. As our e-safety officer I work tirelessly to ensure that we keep up to date with the most recent guidance, support and software to keep our children safe using the internet at school.

At home, sometimes children can be given unsupervised access to the Internet and without the filters that we have at school, this, potentially allows them to access all kinds of our society including social media, gaming sites and many more (both good and bad) and bring them virtually into their homes. Whilst we tend to think of children using the internet on the computer, with technology rapidly changing, please do remember that they can access it via tablets, laptops and mobile phones.

If you have any concerns or just want to have a little more info please do not hesitate to contact me.

Here are some useful links and tips to help you to keep your children safe online in 2019:

From the Press:

Two in five children made anxious every week when using internet, research reveals. A study carried out by UK Safer Internet Centre found that two in five school children have felt worried or anxious using the internet. In addition to this, almost half of the young people surveyed said that in the last year they had experienced some form of cyberbullying. Most importantly, 72% of young people said they wanted their school to teach them about cyberbullying and managing friendships online and one in ten pupils admitted to not receiving any online safety training in their school at all. The online world is filled with so many positive attributes that have helped us in so many ways even in its simplest form, but if not used safely, it also poses an incredible amount of risk.

The game is PEGI rated at 12+ however, there is no proof of age required, which can expose younger children to violent content as well as inappropriate comments from older users.
