Parents and carers play a key role in supporting children to learn about how to stay safe online, and they are one of the first people children turn to if things go wrong. We know it can be difficult to stay on top of the wide range of sites and devices that young people use, so we hope that the following advice helps. Click below for more information:
Internet Safety Day
Safer Internet Day is run by the INSAFE network and is celebrated every year across the world.
Every year this day is designed to help pupils and parents become more aware of the safety messages that your children receive in school in order to reinforce them in your home environment. We also cover this messages in PHSCE and computing sessions as well as recapping them in assemblies. A section of our monthly newsletter is also dedicated to e-safety updates.
We update our Facebook Page regularly with e-safety updates and guides for parents so do check there- https://www.facebook.com/Springbank-Primary-Academy-794820190565336/
