E-Safety for Parents and Children

Here at Ashley Junior School, we are committed to keeping our 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 2018:

Fortnite Safety Song Message:

 

You may have come across your children talking about the game Fortnite. As with many online games, Fortnite: Battle Royale comes with risks to children and young people. 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. Here is a FREE guide for schools and parents with more information about the game to help you keep children safe:
